TUCSON - The Queen of the night captivated Southern Arizonans Saturday night at the Tohono Chul Park.
Tohono Chul Park hosted Bloom Night in celebration of the blooming Peniocereus greggii .
As the summer heat begins to increase, the buds of the night-blooming cereus are able to be seen. After a cycle of start-and-stop growth, the buds blossom entirely on one night a year.
The park was filled with people excited to catch a glimpse of this desert beauty.
The Park is staying open until midnight for this special occasion. Admission is free for members and children under 12. There is a $5 admission fee for non-members.
The 49-acre park is located at 7366 N. Paseo del Norte. The park is north of West Ina Road and west of North Oracle Road.
