  6:30PM 9:00PM 1st Bloom & Glow   This year's unique fun summer event, the 1st Bloom and Glow, is Wednesday, June 6. The 1st Bloom refers to the beginning of the rose blooming season and visitors will be invited to stroll the Richmond Rose Garden as the sun prepares to set. Live easy-listening music by Wayne County musician Pat O'Neal will add to the ambiance. Tickets are on sale for soft drinks and gourmet hors d'oeuvres provided by five well-known local caterers: Fechers' Panache, The Firehouse BBQ & Blues, MCL Restaurant & Bakery, Maria Mitrione's Catering and Radford's Meat Market & Deli. Food tickets are $25 per person and sold in advance. Those with food tickets can sample the refreshment stations around the rose garden. Wine and beer will be available for purchase. Tickets are available at the Wayne County Convention & Tourism Bureau's Old National Road Welcome Center, 5701 National Road E., Richmond, and on weekdays at Wayne County Foundation, 33 S. Seventh St., Richmond. The glow refers to a hot air balloon glow that will also take place that evening adjacent to the garden on the former golf course at Glen Miller Park. Several hot air balloons will be glowing at dusk (shortly before 9 p.m.) Admission is free to the balloon glow. Local businesses, organizations and individuals are sponsoring the balloons and contributing toward the event's other costs. Donations are accepted throughout the year for the rose garden's maintenance, such as buying roses for planting, improving lighting and upgrading irrigation.
