About Brandon in Bloom
The mission of Brandon in Bloom is to inspire a sustainable approach to improving the quality of life and civic pride within our community through sustainable best practices in community involvement, environmental awareness, beautification, heritage preservation, education and networking. It is integral to engage the community- all ages, service groups, business, associations and private citizens- in a public spirited effort to succeed and be recognized.
Brandon in Bloom is integral to our City. Communities that look successful are most likely to be successful. Whether a community's specific goals are to increase tourism, generate new economic development or simply to build civic pride, the face presented to its citizens and others is a key factor in achieving those goals.
In 2011, Brandon was the proud recipient of the National Outstanding Achievement Award in Floral Displays. The Floral Display criteria requires an overall description of how the community demonstrates excellence in Floral Displays. The award is presented based on the efforts of not only the municipality, but also business, institutions, and the residential sectors of the community. The City of Brandon is renowned for its beautiful floral displays. Despite the hardship of the past Spring flood, the community pulled together along with City Staff to maintain its reputation in floral design.
