Mérida, Yucatán — Flower power is all the rage in Mejorada.
The Camino de Flores will remain intact and on view for another week, until Sunday, April 16.
Mayor Mauricio Vila Dosal visited the attraction today, when it was originally scheduled to be taken down. Instead, he announced that the 100-meter-long tribute to native foliage will flower for another seven days.
The colorful exhibit has overtaken the street that runs along the west side of Parque de La Mejorada. The stretch of garden is on Calle 50A between 57 and 59. Visitors can see the work from temporary platforms.
The Camino de Flores has attracted more than 50,000 visitors since debuting March 26.
More than 50,000 plants are arranged into various shapes and designs, with whimsical 2-meter-high topiary as a highlight of the presentation.
