There's still time to enter our contest!

Although the America in Bloom judges visit was in July, Westfield will not know how we scored in the competition until September 30 - October 2 at the 9th Annual America in Bloom Symposium & Awards Program. At that time, Downtown Westfield Corporation and Williams Nursery plan to announce 'Westfield in Bloom' entrants and winners of the following categories: Best Window Boxes, Best Storefronts, Best Planters, Best of Westfield, Best Kid's Gardens, and Best Gardens. Gift certificates from downtown businesses and Williams Nursery will be given to winners in each category.

There's still time to enter! Send your photos and stories of your beautification projects to or post your ideas and beautification efforts to the Westfield in Bloom facebook page.
