Huntington in Bloom has kicked off its popular photo contest. The first category is “Best Bloomin’ Tree.”

It will be accepting photo submissions now through May 14. Please submit photos of Huntington’s trees, efforts to maintain trees, tree lawns, and tree beds on the Huntington in Bloom Facebook page. The winner will be announced May 16 on the City of Huntington Facebook page. (Photos must be taken in Huntington.) 

Submit your photos for a chance to win a prize from one of many participating local restaurants or shops. We can’t wait to see your beautiful entries!

On Thursday, prior to the work session, Tom Belle delivered new flowers to Huntington City Hall. And later that afternoon, two workers volunteered by sprucing up a tree in front of City Hall.

Huntington in Bloom volunteers will be at Southern States, 1329 7th Ave., from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 10, to help children who are accompanied by their parents pot a flower to give to their mother for Mother's Day. The event is free. You can also check the selection of red, yellow and purple flowers that Southern States will have on sale. Those are the colors that Huntington in Bloom will be using in the downtown this year for its floral arrangements. Businesses and residents are encouraged to do the same.
