Charlevoix's annual petunia planting. Everyone is welcome to help plant anywhere along the 5 mile stretch of 31 and then celebrate in East Park with the community picnic. Each year, planting day arrives the Thursday before Memorial Day.Around 1:00 pm the roadway to be planted is narrowed from four lanes to two. Twelve hundred flats of petunias are placed along the curbs from one end of the town to the other. 1000+ volunteer planters from the community proudly assist in the planting in what has become a greatly anticipated local tradition in preparation for another busy summer season. In addition to the flower beds, Keep Charlevoix Beautiful also donates over 80 hanging baskets of petunias, which are hung on lampposts throughout the downtown business district and the Round Lake marina.
