The 26 Annual Cathedral Flower Show in Omaha, Nebraska, will offer visitors an exciting display of beautiful spring flowers, but it will also have a twist of Mexican culture to go along with the attractions, according to The World-Herald.

That's because this year, the show is meant to celebrate Omaha's unique relationship with sister city Xalapa, Mexico. Oddities and trinkets from the Spanish colonial era will be on display at a local cathedral. Much of the south-of-the border decor will be intertwined with the flowers on display.

Executive director of the show Brother William Woeger told the news source that there will be more than 35 florists present. And, with 42 different exhibits, they will be sure to be displaying all sorts of colorful flower types.

"This is a wonderful gift to the city that actually happens because so many are willing to participate and volunteer their time and talent," he said.

Many flower shows have been popping up in recent months. One of the biggest in New England - the Rhode Island Spring Flower and Garden Show - will be taking place next month, offering visitors a chance to glimpse over 5,000 different flowers, according to
