Yes it is.

That pretty much says it all also.

Simple question. Simple answer. Simple thank you. Thank you.

Mid-June's going to be almost the peak of bloom, isn't it?

Thank you.

The Lompoc Valley Flower Festival will be held June 20-24 at Ryon Memorial Park in Lompoc. So yes, June is the peak of bloom in Lompoc. The current satellite view of the flower flag's location shows a flat dirt lot there now. Go to http://mapper.acme.com/ and paste in N 34.63808 W 120.47708 and click the "Find" button. So either that satellite photo is older than 2002, or else they moved the flag to another location, or else they replant it every year. In any case, the flag is best seen from the air.

LDN,

No.. and you won't see many flowers this time of year. The 'flag' was planted and grown a few years back. It was an amazing feat even for the growers with not knowing if their efforts would produce that amazing flower flag! Of course as we all know, it did, and it was truly amazing!

Yes, it was at Ocean and V st. Perhaps if you called the Chamber of Commerce and enquire as to if the growers are consider a repeat in the next years.

Flower Festival.... ALWAYS held the last "full weekend" in June.

Hope this helps :)

And that does mean a lot, really, but, quite aside from drill being a Destination Expert (albeit for somewhere else) with a four thousand post history, quite aside from that, 'Yes it is.' is pretty unambiguous.

Anyway, as you say, my best course of action is probably to call the Chamber of Commerce. I have emailed them, the same day I posted this thread, but they haven't come back. I call them. Perhaps not today!

They should be back in the office Monday morning local time (not sure what their Christmas Holiday hours are). I'm not sure who works there now, but most of the people there have extensive knowledge of Lompoc History as well as current happenings.

:)
