#hello_monaco weekend: what to do on May 4th and May 5th
This weekend Monaco is blooming with events: International Flower Arranging Competition and Monaco International Dog Show are just a few… So in case you don’t know what to start with HelloMonaco selected some events for you.
After a hiatus in 2018, the International Flower Arranging Competition is back on Saturday 4 and Sunday 5 May 2019, Terrasses du Casino.
Since 1968, the Garden Club de Monaco has organised an annual flower arranging competition involving between 100 and 150 international competitors.
Under the Presidency of H.R.H. the Princess of Hanover, the competition includes seven categories. With the exception of the 7th category, which is reserved for young gardeners aged between 8 and 18, the categories are open to all: amateurs, professionals, judges, demonstrators and instructors. This year’s theme is the climate.
There will also be an opportunity to discover a stunning presentation of vegetable gardens created by the talented landscape architect Jean Mus.
To take part in the competition, simply complete an entry form and return it to the Garden Club de Monaco.
This year, more than 170 breeds and more than 1,000 dogs will be represented at the Monaco International Dog Show over the two days, on Saturday 4 May and Sunday 5 May, Espace Fontvieille.
The Monaco International Dog Show is pleased to welcome nine judges from different countries who will give their verdict to designate the Best in Show.
The Junior Handling competition will take place on both days from 3 p.m. – this features young people in training, from 5 to 9 years of age or from 10 to 17 years of age, who are judged presenting a dog, rather than the dog itself being judged.
