Queen of the Night - for just one night

"Bloom Night" is a highly anticipated event every year at Tucson's Tohono Chul Park. With sometimes just a few hours' notice, the park will issue the announcement that it is "Bloom Night" and thousands of visitors come to the park to view the mysterious night-blooming cereus that bloom for just one night. It is a spectacular, breathtaking event!
