Madeira Flower Festival 2013/End of the Parade

Little I did alone in this project, I didn’t create something extraordinary, neither something new to the world but I am happy! Everybody that participated and collaborated in this project are happy.
The “Colorful Passion ” succeeded 100%, enriching a bit more the Madeira Flower Festival.
A thank you to the Madeira Tourism Board for the invitation and support that it was given to the group and also a big thank you to the Funchal City Council for once more being my great sponsorship, which without its financial support it wouldn’t be possible to create this project.

Madeira Flower Festival 2013/Paixão Colorida

At this year’s Flower Festival Parade I decided to celebrate it by having a giant red heart filled with Anthuriums bringing out love and affection because that is the way we, Madeira natives, receive all visitors who come to our magnificent Island.

As simple as it may appear this is the reason why tourists come back to Madeira Island, because they are received with love and affection. Having this in mind it is true to say that nobody hosts as well as we do and it is through our actions and the way that we welcome people that this Island is considered a great place to visit.

It may not be because of the green hills, the fantastic blue sea, or even the exotic unique flowers or the catching mild temperature that brings to us so many visitors year after year, but it is most definitely because of our loving character that makes tourists wanting to come back over and over again! It is a friendly gift from us, who are glad to use it, to those who are lucky to receive it.

People only return to places where they are accepted with love and kindness. And is there better joy than to make people wanting to return to this beautiful Island? It is a dazzling place to live in, which is the reason why many foreign eventually choose to do so.

This year we have received all visitors in an even more special way, with warm colors where red is considered the most powerful color of them all.
