Westlake in Bloom

Westlake in Bloom is a friendly competition among residents, organizations and businesses in the Westlake community. Each spring a call goes out for entries for categories ranging from window boxes to entire yards, from private residences to corporate campuses.  Judging takes place in early July with the winners announced at the awards ceremony in August. The best of the best is recognized with the Lu Walter "Best in Bloom" award.

Photos and the names of the first place winners are published here and in the City's annual Westlake Magazine.
