Downtown Quincy is bursting with new life thanks to the Adopt a Pot program.
The Historic Quincy Business District has 56 planters along downtown streets. Businesses, groups, or families can adopt a planter for $20 and fill it with flowers, plants and other greenery.
Planters are given out on a first-come, first-serve basis. Participants say the pots help to bring more color, class, and charm to Downtown Quincy.
"That it is fun," Christine Kaiser," Owner of Expressions By Christine, said. "And when you look out in the morning and you see bright flowers or flower arrangement in your pot it just makes you smile and it makes the people coming in smile so it makes everything good."
Contests will also be held for the most well-kept, most creative and best looking planters!
