A special thank you to the Dixon in Bloom Committee for the hanging baskets of petunias on Galena Avenue, Peoria Avenue, First Street and a portion of Second Street. In 2016, the group increased the number of baskets to 265. The cost of planting the baskets runs approximately $17,000 annually.
The money for these baskets comes from individual donations. The Dixon Area Garden Club and the Rock River Garden Club have been major financial contributors to the Dixon in Bloom program. Donations are always appreciated and may be sent to: Dixon in Bloom, P.O. Box 127, Dixon, IL 61021.
The winning ticket will be drawn by our 2023 Pinky Petunia, Molly Oliver. Proceeds support the Dixon Petunia Festival, a non-profit organization. Winner will receive 50% of actual sales, up to $5,000 and is responsible for all taxes. Need not be present to win.
