The flowers are in full bloom and the beauty of summer in Crookston is on display.

    The Crookston Area Chamber and Visitor’s Bureau would like to give a warm thank you to everyone who purchased a hanging basket through the Adopt-A-Basket Program. These multi-colored flowers are the focus of some amazing pictures taken by community members which means they are being enjoyed by many.     

    We would also like to thank the hardworking staff of our Crookston City who make sure these flowers are watered daily.
