The Dixon in Bloom committee is responsible for the fundraising, planting, and hanging of the petunia baskets in downtown Dixon. The Dixon in Bloom Committee was formed in April, 2011 when the first hanging baskets of petunias were placed on the Galena and Peoria Avenue bridges. The area has now increased to include Galena Avenue, Peoria Avenue, First Street and a portion of Second Street. In 2016, the group increased the number of baskets to 265. The cost of planting the baskets runs approximately $17,000 annually. The monies for these baskets come from individual donations. The Dixon Area Garden Club and The Rock River Garden Club have been major financial contributors to the Dixon in Bloom program. Donations are always appreciated and may be sent to P.O. Box 127 Dixon, IL 61021
