When Sandpoint’s Business Improvement District dissolved, so did the funding for downtown’s iconic flower baskets.
To keep the bright tradition going, the Sandpoint Shopping District and the city are teaming up to create a sponsorship system.
Anyone in the community can sponsor a flower basket for $75 per basket, and the city will take care of watering. The goal is to have 50 flower baskets up before Lost in the ‘50s.
“(The flower baskets) set us apart from other downtowns,” said Sharon’s Hallmark owner Deanna Harris, who approached the city about creating a sponsorship program.
To sponsor a flower basket, write and send checks to the Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce.
