Ludington Petunia Parade
By the time of the July 4th Freedom Festival, the petunias are in full bloom and a wave of color lines the avenue from Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital all the way down to the beach. Each block is assigned a captain who is responsible for maintaining the petunias in that block. From planting the petunias to watering and weeding, it literally "takes a village" to keep this tradition going. The cost for the planting season is $10,000. This is a volunteer donation supported project. The Ludington Petunia Parade Committee would greatly appreciate your help. Donations may be sent to:
