In 2013, Huntington participated in the "America in Bloom" competition for the first time. In doing so, volunteers founded the local organization Huntington in Bloom to achieve the following goals

  • Improve the quality of life in Huntington
  • Promote community involvement and unity
  • Identify opportunities for improvement
  • Preserve Huntington's rich heritage by embracing its culture

Our city was awarded four out of five blooms in the “America in Bloom” competition. Currently, Huntington is not participating in the competition but instead will work together through Huntington in Bloom to focus on making improvements that will further beautify our city.

America in Bloom promotes nationwide beautification through education and community involvement by encouraging the use of flowers, plants, trees, and other environmental and lifestyle enhancements. America in Bloom is an independent, non-profit organization and contributions to AIB are tax deductible. Through the contest, participants experience better cooperation among municipal, commercial and residential sectors because everyone works toward a common goal.
