You have seen plenty of Phalaenopsis orchids for sale in the grocery stores but did you know that there are thousands of other kinds of orchids? They come in size from something a mosquito would love to the size of a small tree.  At the orchid show you will see many of these beautiful orchids arranged in colorful displays.  Come to the show. Bring a camera.  Learn more about care of orchids.  Perhaps buy one for yourself or a friend.
