 MOTHER NATURE HELPS CYPRESS GARDENS
 EXTEND SPRING FLOWER FESTIVAL THROUGH MEMORIAL DAY
 CYPRESS GARDENS, Fla., May 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Because Mother Nature has brought beautiful, sunny days and cooler nights to central Florida this spring, Cypress Gardens' popular Spring Flower Festival will remain in bloom through Memorial Day, offering guests the opportunity to enjoy this breathtaking floral display during the holiday weekend.
 Originally scheduled through May 15, this one-of-a-kind floral festival features 10 larger-than-life floral topiaries uniquely shaped as different animals, including swans, peacocks, a rabbit and others.
 On display through May 25, these magnificent structures reach up to 18 feet in height and contain more than 88,000 brightly colored bedding plants, including yellow pansies; white, violet and orange impatiens; and red and pink begonias.
 "We are delighted that the weather has cooperated allowing us to extend this spectacular springtime display," said Bill Reynolds, general manager of Cypress Gardens. "The park's new Spring Flower Festival has attracted more visitors than we initially anticipated."
 Visitors to Cypress Gardens also will enjoy strolling among the 150,000 blooming spring annuals that provide a picturesque background for this unique topiary display.
 On Monday, May 25, at 2:30 p.m., Cypress Gardens also will host the 10th Annual Military Salute to honor members of the U.S. Armed Forces who gave their lives for their country.
 In addition to a special memorial wreath presentation by active honor and color guards, spectators also will have the opportunity to view a spectacular fly-over from the 125th Interceptor Squadron of the Florida Air National Guard.
 Cypress Gardens, an Anheuser-Busch theme park, is located off U.S. 27, 40 minutes southwest of Sea World and Walt Disney World, one hour from Tampa or Orlando, and is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. The single admission price is $18.95 (plus tax), which includes all shows and attractions; admission for children (ages 3-9) is $12.95 (plus tax).
