BATH — Seventeen unusual planters competed for the top honors in the Wacky, Funky Planter Contest, which took place during Bath Community Day Aug. 3.

In its eighth year, the contest invited adults and children to submit entries of plants in unusual containers. According to organizer Al Eddy, the contest was started in 2006 to encourage families to garden together. This year’s winners in the adult category included Joslyn Saunders in first place, Alia Saunders in second and Cosette Thomas in third.

Winners received a ribbon and various prizes donated by local merchants. Judging was done by members of the Gardeners of Greater Akron.
