Letter: Mayor Dave Butler, Leesburg

Editor: The 26th Annual Leesburg Flower & Garden Festival was clearly a success this weekend. Buoyed by wonderful weather, the crowds were enormous both days. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen larger. As mayor, I could not have asked for a better festival.

I would like to thank the tremendous efforts by the Parks & Recreation staff. You all did a fantastic job, as usual. I’d also like to thank the vendors, the downtown shop owners that were open, the volunteers at many of the community booths, and the friends and family who came to wrap the 2,000 trees for the Leesburg Tree Commission to give away. (As the Tree Commission liaison, I am admittedly a bit biased toward them).

The sponsors this year were the Loudoun Medical Group, LeafFIlter Gutter Protection, Gutter Helmet, Dulles Greenway, Wells Fargo, Willowsford, Conservancy, Sunshine Contracting, Bath Fitter, Mountcastle Plastic Surgery & Vein Institute, Renewal by Anderson, Loudoun Now, Wegmans, Mid-Atlantic Waterproofing, NOVA, and Dulles Motor Cars.  Thank you all for your support and for helping to make the show happen.

With more than 150 crafters, vendors, displays, and exhibits throughout the six-block area in downtown, the festival is a wonderful event.

I hope everyone enjoyed themselves and will plan to come back again next year.

Thank you all,

Mayor Dave Butler, Leesburg
