The 2021 Festival of Flowers, LoDa Style, in Cathedral Square was a cultural delight for Mobile and the surrounding areas as well as a boost to downtown businesses. The community event, open to the public through a donation of choice, was attended by more than 10,000. Proceeds of the 2021 Festival of Flowers LoDa Style will be used to purchase Critical Care Monitors for the Cardiac Care Unit at Providence Hospital.
