10 a.m., Wildwood Park for the Performing Arts. $5-$10 adv., $25-$35 d.o.s.

New CEO Cliff Fannin Baker kicks off Wildwood Park's new feel with Blooms, a two-day festival that blends culture and the outdoors, with live music, plein air painting in the park, a flower market and high tea under a tent by the lake. A children's area will include storytellers, a puppet show, a petting zoo, costumed actors reading from “Beatrix Potter” and a May pole. Arkansas Opera Theatre's Opera-to-Go Company will perform the children's opera Pinocchio. Musical entertainment includes Lark in the Morning, Old School Bluegrass Band and Arkansas Brass Quintet. Local horticulturalists and naturalist will give seminars for gardeners and nature enthusiasts. “The Bottle Tree,” a musical pastiche of recollections of former Arkansas first ladies, will also premiere. Conceived and directed the Baker, the play will be performed at 6 p.m. Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday. Both shows will be preceded by meals. The event runs to 6 p.m. Saturday and from noon till 6 p.m. Sunday. See for a complete schedule.
