Rockford Park District’s City of Gardens holds Top Pot Contest
From press release
The Rockford Park District’s City of Gardens is seeking nominations for its Top Pot Contest for its Rockford in Bloom community beautification awards. Container gardening is widely popular for its manageability and WOW factor. Floral containers in front of a business or home can dazzle and welcome guests as well as tell the story about who lives inside.
Contestants will be vying for the title of the Rockford area’s most beautiful entryway or container gardening area. Nominations are encouraged for unique and creative containers with designs and patterns that develop interest and beauty. Multiple pots or rearranging patterns provide very attractive features and build community pride. The designs are endless.
Nominations must be within the Rockford Park District. This includes Rockford, Loves Park, parts of Cherry Valley, New Milford and adjacent unincorporated areas of Winnebago County. Areas nominated must be visible from a right of way (street, path, sidewalk, etc.) or have public access.
Nomination entries must be received by July 15. Top Pots can be posted on the City of Gardens Facebook page, or photographs can be mailed to: Rockford Park District, City of Gardens, 401 S. Main St., Rockford, IL 61101. Nominations’ contact information including a phone number is required.
For more information, contact: Ruth Miller, program director, City of Gardens, (815) 987-1689 or email@example.com.
