The Colorado Carnation Industry
Presented by Bob Briggs, the carnation flower has its own lengthy history. In the 1960's the City of Wheat Ridge had 32 different carnation growers and sent flowers to the White House every Monday morning. The bouquet was displayed in the front foyer with a card stating: "With compliments to our nation's capital, Wheat Ridge, Colorado, Carnation City", per the Wheat Ridge Historical Society. Like so many traditions, occasions and festivals, finding the exact origins of the specifics are as steeped in unknown as the carnation flower itself. So many of the city's founders and festival originators have passed-but their legacy continues.
