Daffodils planted last fall by hundreds of local volunteers blossom in one of the North End Parks of the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway.

A group of North End nature lovers will celebrate the long-awaited coming of spring on Sunday with their first annual Daffodil Day at the North End Parks of the Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Greenway.

Last November, the Friends of the North End Parks worked with the Greenway Conservancy and hundreds of volunteers to plant approximately 13,000 daffodil bulbs in the two parks between Haymarket Square and North Street. On Sunday, April 14, the organization will celebrate the blooming of the flowers with a community festival from noon to 3 p.m.

The festival will include a parade of Eliot School students wearing daffodil-themed hats they made themselves, as well as Doggies Donned in Daffodils organized by Responsible Urbanites for Fido, or RUFF, a group for North End dog owners.

All are welcome to attend the free event, which will also include balloons, face-painting, lawn games, live music, and light refreshments. Daffodil Day is co-sponsored by the Greenway Conservancy and the North End Beautification Committee.

In the event of rain on April 14, the event will be rescheduled for April 15.
