Downtown spruces up for competition

Aug. 25, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Many downtown Huntington businesses chose to participate in the Huntington In Bloom effort as part of the America In Bloom in competition.

Participating cities benefit simply from the effort of beautifying their cities, which is important in economic development, tourism and quality of life. In addition, judges toured in the city in July to check on Huntington's progress. Winners of the national competition will be announced in September.

For more information about Huntington in Bloom, visit the organization's website at www.huntingtoninbloom.com or Facebook page, www.facebook.com/huntingtoninbloom.
