The lavender plant is well known for its calming effects, as well as acting as a natural mosquito repellent.
The annual attraction is always a busy place, according to Amy Mai, a helper with the Lavender Merchant.
“We’ve had steady business all day and we really appreciate all the support from the community, it’s a great family activity. We also have new this year lavender tiaras," Mai said.
You can check out the festival on Sunday from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
If Kuna is a bit of a long drive, you can check out the Red Chair Lavender Festival that's happening in Eagle.
