VERONA, Wis. (WMTV) --- Thousands of people are flocking to Pope Farm Conservancy to see over half a million sunflowers in bloom.

Visitors can check out the nine acres of sunflowers from sunrise to sunset. The sunflowers were planted by a local farmer at the end of May. This weekend, visitors from near and far came to see the flowers in peak bloom.

"I don't know, I've always loved sunflowers and so when i saw about it, I saw it on the internet actually, I saw a picture of this place on Facebook. I contacted my friend and said 'When are we going to go?' because I absolutely love sunflowers," said Susan Vondra, who made the trip to Verona from Apple River, Illinois.

Last year's Sunflower Days attracted 84,000 people and they're already ahead of last year's numbers. The event is free to the public and open through next Sunday.
