    BIGELOW, Ark. (March 16, 2013) - Every year thousands make the trek up Wye Mountain to see the daffodils in full bloom.

    The Wye Mountain United Methodist Church puts the festival on every year. Thirty different types of daffodils span a 7-acre field.

    Ross Harmon, whose great-grandfather actually planted the first daffodils, promises that there will many more flowers to see than last year.

    "The heat got us last year," he says. "This year has been normal and stable so all the flowers are blooming out, there are still a lot more to come out and they just get prettier every day."

    The public is invited to attend, take pictures and best of all, admission is free. Donations to the Wye Mountain United Methodist Church are accepted. 

    And it's more than just beautiful flowers. There will be food, crafts and professional portraits available.

    For more information on the festival, check out their Facebook page.

    The festival officially kicks off at 9 a.m. today and is expected to close down Sunday. No pets are allowed, except for service dogs.
