The annual Fall Chrysanthemum Show features an extraordinary display of blooms in a variety of shapes and colors. The Fall Mum Show has been a popular college and community tradition since the early 1900s and showcases the hybridizing experiments of the horticulture class. The public gets a chance to vote on their favorites.
