My husband and I visited the Wistaria Festival for the first time today. Not very impressive. Not many blooms and the ones that were there were on the top of the vine (naturally) and not very visible underneath. They think it will be more in bloom next week, but of course they plan the date of the festival way in advance. The street fair/craft show and the town of Sierra Madre were fun though. My advice is to have low expectations of the actual vine. Also, take a bottle of waater for when you’re waiting in line for the shuttle (both up and back) and to get in to see the vine.
