KALAMAZOO (WKZO)-- Every summer for the last three decades, downtown Kalamazoo and Central Portage have exploded with flowers, celebrating the local bedding plant industry.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Kalamazoo in Bloom, ‘Mike’ the Peacock will be joined by a menagerie of 55 other other creatures, all made from plants.

Monica Trahe says they will be planting over 50-thousand flowers in the next few weeks.

They will hold a celebration combined with an Art Hop in early August.

If you would like to volunteer to help plant, you can get dates and information at Kalamazooinbloom.org.
