3/14/2018 - Donate to the Canton Flower Bridge


The Canton Flower Bridge is about to launch its fourth year of providing beautiful floral displays along the wooden walking bridge, located beside the Farmington River on River Road in Collinsville.

Canton Main Street, Inc., the originating organization for this project, is especially grateful for the community’s positive response to this beautification effort. The generosity of numerous businesses, organizations and individuals has provided the essential funding needed to develop the flower bridge over the past three years. During this time, the bridge has displayed 11 stunning hanging flower baskets, 9 flower boxes, and 3 large stationary planters. As the seasons changed, the bridge transitioned to a beautiful winter display that included evergreen planters and holiday kissing balls. Additionally, a drip irrigation system was installed to help nurture the flowers through the hot summer months. Our vision remains focused on the enhancement of Canton’s natural beauty using floral displays that will delight residents and visitors to our town.

In the upcoming months, we will be preparing the design of the Canton Flower Bridge for 2018. We will also be seeking sponsors for the new planting season in order to defray costs and to ensure the continuing success of this beautification project.

If you were a sponsor last year, please consider participating again this year. If you haven’t been a sponsor yet, we invite you to become a “Friend of the Canton Flower Bridge.” All contributions are tax-deductible and will be used to purchase flowers for the seasonal displays. If you’re looking for a way to remember a special someone or to commemorate a special occasion, consider a gift of sponsorship.

Suggested Sponsorship Levels:

  • $300- Large Stationary Planter (4 season display ): includes a personalized sign in the planter

  • $250- Hanging Planter and Kissing Ball (summer & winter): includes a personalized name plaque

  • $200- Flowerbox (summer) includes a personalized name plaque on the bridge railing

  • $5 to $199 - Provides varied flower selections planted throughout the year

Please send your tax-deductible checks payable to Canton Main Street, Inc Flower Bridge project. P.O. Box 350 Canton, CT 06019.

Our vision is to provide Canton with a floral display that delights residents and visitors to our town for years to come! We thank you in advance for your generosity and steadfast commitment to a beautiful Canton.
