Volunteers will be planting 10,000 flower bulbs in Hunters Point South Park and Gantry Plaza State Park on Sunday, Oct. 20.
The fifth annual LIC Bulbfest, organized by the Hunters Point Parks Conservancy (HPPC), is set to be the biggest bulb planting event yet.
A combined total of nearly 22,000 bulbs have been planted at the last four events and HPPC is hoping that this year’s planting will lead to remarkable spring blooms. Volunteers will be planting a mix of different flowers, including tulips and daffodils.
