The Marigold Mile is back for the first time since 2016!
Local 5 had the opportunity to plant the first batch of marigolds along Oneida Street in Appleton Monday.
The Fox Valley Nursery hopes to have the entire mile done by the 4th of July but needs the help of more volunteers. Contact the nursery here: http://www.foxvalleynursery.com or visit the nursery in person to find out how you can be part of the historic Marigold Mile!!
