Adopt a Hydrant in Delphos


A new addition to Canal Days has special artwork popping up all over Delphos.

The Adopt a Hydrant contest invited businesses and individuals to pick a hydrant in the city and paint them as a character or with a theme. The hydrants will then be voted on, with winners in the Most Creative, People's Choice, and Best Cartoon Character categories. This is the first year that the hydrant contest has been put on, and so far it has been a success.

"It's something that I think we'll just keep moving forward with, so if someone still wants to paint them they're more than welcome to - the money all goes back to the community - we had a lot of out-of-towners even come through to look at them because we posted whether all located at online," said Maria Diltz, executive director of the Delphos Chamber of Commerce.

The hydrants will be voted on through the weekend, starting Friday.
