Planters & Baskets on Main Street

Each spring, flowers are planted in the planters lining Prophetstown’s Main Street and in the baskets hanging from the light poles. Flowers also adorn the baskets hanging in Eclipse Square. Adding color and character to our downtown, they provide a beautiful gateway to our community! Before the start of Christmas activities, the planters are decorated for the holidays.

Open Houses

Open Houses for new businesses are a good way to spread awareness about the services and products offered as well as gain the attention of potential new customers. They are also often held when the business expands into a new location or adds additional goods or services. When done in conjunction with a Ribbon Cutting, it is a grand way to start a new venture!
