When the first Floriade festival was announced in 1987, it struck people as an exciting new event to look forward to. The word “Floriade” is said by some sources to mean “to decorate with floral designs.” However, according to a later version of events, this term comes from the Latin verb form ‘floworet?’ which means both ‘to dress’ and also has ties back to our English words like flourish or blossoming so maybe we could say that its original intent was more about celebration than just plain old beauty?
