Tryon to bloom red this spring

Business owners in downtown Tryon are participating in “Tryon Blooms,” an initiative by the Tryon Downtown Development Association to create more color and flowers in downtown Tryon.

The program is in place to prepare for the influx of visitors this summer due to the World Equestrian Games at Tryon International Equestrian Center.

“We want to welcome visitors to our beautiful downtown” said Jamie Carpenter, executive director of the Tryon Downtown Development Association.

This program was funded by downtown business owners, the Rotary Club of Tryon Foundation, the Polk County Appearance Commission and with support of the Town of Tryon, Tryon Garden Club, Green Blades Garden Club and Daffy Jill’s Garden Club. TDDA is also supported by the Town of Tryon and the Polk County Community Foundation.

The flowers are being grown by the Polk County High School FFA, and planting day will be May 4, 2018. If you would like to help or be involved, please contact TDDA at 828-859-6484.
