Pennsylvania Bonsai Society Exhibits
PBS members participate in two main bonsai exhibits during the year, the Philadelphia Flower Show (March) and the Harvest Show(September). Both shows feature 12-16 trees. PBS members have also displayed bonsai at the MidAtlantic Spring Festivals and American Bonsai Society Conventions.

"Moon gates" at the Philadelphia Flower Show Exhibit. Each member's tree is spotlighted within the moon gate's circular frame. Lighting is then adjusted to spotlight the tree's foilage or the silhouette of the tree.The moon gates allow the trees to be visually isolated from each other, creating a viewport in which each tree may be seen at its best. The overall effect of the display is very stunning.
