Who Are We?

        The Ludington Petunia Parade, a 501(c)3, is a volunteer project dedicated to the beautification of the Ludington community, funded by businesses, industries, and interested donors. The Ludington Petunia Parade board continues the tradition started by Ellery and Sue Sabin in 1988.

         The Ludington Petunia Parade Board appreciates the support of the many citizens who enjoy this community project.


                                               2024 IS OUR 37th SEASON!

           Thank you to all our wonderful donors and volunteers.

             May 18, 2024 Planting Day was spectacular in every respect.


New Poly Tank Is On The Job!

With a sincere Thank You to our generous donors,

Pennies from Heaven Foundation and the Peggy Aase Womack Memorial fund,

the Ludington Petunia Parade board purchased

this poly tank that replaced our steel tank.

The new bigger tank and pump system is presently watering our 30,000 plus petunias. Thank you to the master mind and engineer Ted Radtke for this new design and to

Ian Radtke for implementing his dad's plan.

To all our Donors who continue contributing to this beautification project, THANK YOU!
