Downtown Beautification

Each year in May, the community of Momence comes together to beautify our downtown district. Volunteers of all ages show up to plant flowers and hang the sponsored baskets on the walkbridge and downtown street corners.

Walkbridge flower baskets

The order form for your 2017 basket is now available online.

This year's flower baskets will be hung on the walkbridge to Island Park, as well as from the light poles in downtown Momence. Take a stroll through downtown and out to the walkbridge and enjoy the beauty!
