DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ7) The fifth annual "Make Danville Shine" event kicks off this weekend.

The city wants residents to really focus on the appearance of their yards. They say that just planting a few flowers or keeping your grass mowed goes a long way.

"Get out, do some things around the house. This is a chance to clean out the house, clean out the basement, clean out the utility buildings, bring it to the street. Keep your flowers, plant some flowers, just spruce it up," says Danville Division Director of Inspections, Jerry Rigney.

Danville Mayor John Gilstrap has declared May "Make Danville Shine" month. The kickoff event is the home expo, which is Saturday at the Community Market from 8 a.m. to noon.
