Macy's 61st Annual Flower show, featuring India this year...

We went to city yesterday to spend a evening, eat some good food and there we bumped into Macy's building. What we see is this

Like every year Macy's celebrates one country in their annual event, this year they were featuring India in their "Macy's 61st Annual Union Square Flower Show". This affiche covered the whole building with amazing art work and vibrant colors representing Indian culture.
The interesting part of this whole event was not inside, it was outside. They had a huge Ganesha idol right up in the main entrance and it was fabulous how it was adding excitement to this whole show. This simply reminded us Ganesh Chaturthi whole India celebrates every year August-September.
As we walked inside Macy's most of things was designed around this theme and some part was designed like Indian bazaar where they were selling more contemporary/ethnic things , with Indian dub music running in the background.
Guess we were lucky to be there and see this marvelous piece of work and gala observance because it was last day of the show.
