Rain delays downtown Duluth dig

A forecast for wet weather today has postponed plans to spruce up Duluth’s downtown.

The Greater Downtown Council now is looking for volunteers Thursday to help plant flowers and beautify Duluth’s downtown waterfront district. Participants should gather with work gloves and gardening tools at 10 a.m. in Bayfront Park, where about 150 downtown planters are waiting for flowers.

When filled with floral vegetation, the planters will be transported by city crews and used to adorn downtown sidewalks. The Greater Downtown Council’s Clean & Safe Team will tend and water the plants throughout the summer, and all who visit Duluth will enjoy the benefits.
