It may not be as sunny as we'd like outside but the rain certainly helps those plants grow so you could say it was the perfect day for the America In Bloom kick off.
Dozens of community members gathered at Cliffbreakers today to promote Rockford's official entry into the competition that began back in 2001. It's a way to beautify our community and improve our quality of life.
We're all encouraged to plant flowers or do other activities to show interest in the environment. Some communities have already started the digging process, judging will take place later this summer and Rockford is the host city for the competition this year!
