SAN ANTONIO – A field of sunflowers is blooming in San Antonio, and it’s ready for visitors!

Traders Village in San Antonio announced earlier this year that it planted a 10-acre field of sunflowers. Although the opening date has shifted due to weather conditions, Traders Village has set a new date for the field’s grand opening on June 12.

Here is a first look at the Sunflower Field. They are really opening up now. They will certainly be ready by Saturday...

“The official opening date for the Sunflower Field has been moved to Saturday, June 12th. We greatly apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but the weather has simply not been kind to a sunflower field. The one key ingredient they need is … SUN… Go figure! We have not had much of that lately. They are growing…just not blooming,” Traders Village said in a statement.

In addition to the sunflower field, there will also be a fun path filled with lots of photo opportunities, a petting zoo, an apple cannon, and professional photo packages.

Here are the admission prices for the field, according to Traders Village’s website:

  • $7.99 — Sunflower Wristband (All Day) (persons 3 & older)
  • FREE — Kids 2 & under (Sunflower Field ONLY–Does NOT apply to rides)
  • $14.99 — COMBO: All Day in the Sunflower Field & All-Day Ride Wristband (ALL Rides are located inside Traders Village — There are no rides at the Sunflower Field)
