The tour is part of a national contest that is based off of things like environmental efforts, landscaping, preservation of heritage and urban forestry and displays. The America in Bloom association send judges to all of the participating areas, this year's judges being Tony Ferrara and Susie Stratton. Stratton is the owner of a business called Stratton Greenhouses, which serves Ohio's growing needs and has since 1949. Ferrara served on the city of Arroyo Grande, California city council for 16 years and was the city's mayor for 12 years.
