Joseph James Mingari and Jane Marie D'Amato dance to the disco beat at Flowers After Hours.

Saturday night was alright at the 2018 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show. 

Thirty minutes after the opening day of the show officially ended, the space bloomed into a 1970's discotheque for the Flowers After Hours Disco Fever party. Behind the turntables was DJ Robert Drake keeping the dance floor packed with tunes from Sylvester, Donna Summer and Evelyn “Champagne” King. The iconic Village People also performed, driving the crowd into a frenzy with their tunes "Macho Man" and "Y.M.C.A." Many guests dressed the part wearing bell-bottoms, floral shirts and big hair. 

Proceeds from the event benefit the year-round programs of the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society. The 2018 PHS Philadelphia Flower Show at the Pennsylvania Convention Center runs through Sunday, March 11, 2018.
