It's the annual mango festival!  It's truly mango-mania where the whole weekend is devoted to all things mango.  

Enjoy mango tastings, cooking demonstrations, and mango-inspired activities and classes all while keeping cool at various cool zones and misty areas. 

Start of with insightful lectures into various mango types, optimal growing techniques, tips on storing and harvesting. After your delicious tastings, shop from a wide variety of unique mangos grown locally. 

Adults and children can enjoy exotic butterfly exhibit at the Wings of the Tropics. Then the parents can sit in the shade and watch your little ones run, play and explore The Children's Garden.

Then cool down in the misty cloud forest with a mango drink at the National Orchid Garden, the only tropical rainforest in the continental US.
