This year, the theme is Great Contributors, and a few Dallas residents who are regular volunteers at the garden are co-chairing the festival.

During Dallas Blooms, 500,000 spring flowers are visible. Most of the blooms are tulips, but there are also hyacinth and daffodils.

In addition to the flowers, the arboretum will showcase statues by Gary Lee Price, who has created bronze statues of William Shakespeare, Amelia Earhart, Harriet Tubman, Joan of Arc, Mother Teresa, Ruby Bridges, Albert Einstein, Benjamin Franklin and Mark Twain.

The Cool Thursdays concert series will return, as will the annual Food and Wine festival. There will also be a Shakespeare Dallas appearance and a bird show, along with garden markets and other events.

Admission to the garden costs $5 through Feb. 24.
