This weekend is your last chance to trek out to Forest Grove and catch the tail end of the 2014 Lily Festival. Venture out to Parry's Tree Farm and Nursery this Friday through Sunday to view over 10,000 blooming variations including Tiger, Asiatic and Calla Lilies.

The festival, which offers free admission, will also have blooming lilies and bulbs available for purchase. Daily door prize tickets will be awarded to those who purchase lilies.

For a full day of flowery fun, head out on Saturday or Sunday and pay a small fee to partake in the afternoon and evening BBQ while soaking up a spectacular view of the blooming fields. Wine tasting, supplied by Schafer Vineyard Cellar, will also be available for those 21 and up.

Finally, be sure to bring your camera and snap some photos of the flowers. The festival will be hosting a photo competition, with a 100-dollar gift certificate to 1910 Main American Bistro for the first place winner.
