Flowers on display at Camellia Cavalcade

Spring has arrived, and while many plants and flowers are just beginning to come out of their winter slumber, camellias are in full bloom.

Some of the most beautiful camellias in Northern California were on display Saturday at the 49th annual Camellia Cavalcade on the grounds of E.&J. Gallo Winery.

"America the Beautiful" is the theme of this year's event, which features exhibitors from Fresno to Napa.

The show continues today; admission is free and hours are 10:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The winery is off Yosemite and South Morton boulevards.
