It’s that time of year again, to decorate our city with beauty and color! The Crookston Chamber and Visitor’s Bureau is sponsoring the Adopt-A-Basket activity in Crookston for the 11th year. Register for Adopting A Basket will begin April 22nd. Our goal this year is 80 hanging flower baskets.

If you would like to adopt a basket, you may choose this opportunity to memorialize or honor a loved one while adding beauty to our community. A list of sponsors and their memorials will be listed in the Crookston Daily Times newspaper and on KROX radio. The cost to adopt a basket is $65.00. This covers the costs of the plants and maintenance (fertilizer, labor for daily watering, etc.) You also have the option to purchase a small plaque to be out on the light pole with the names of the donor and their loved one for an additional $10.00.

To participate in the Adopt-A-Basket activity please contact the Crookston Chamber/CVB at 218-281-4320 or You will also find a printable Adopt-A-Basket form on our Crookston Chamber Facebook page and on our website,

Mail completed forms and payment to the Crookston Area Chamber and Visitor’s Bureau 103 South Broadway Crookston, MN 56716.
