CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

After a successful All Star Game, Wednesday will mark clean-up day for volunteers.

Tables will be hauled away and tents taken down. The process takes about 10 hours.

Organizers tell us none of it would be possible without volunteers.

By now, almost everything should be out of the park. All that is left is sweeping and raking.

We told you about Evans Landscaping, installing nearly 10,000 flowers to cover the metal gates at the main entrance, creating a living wall.

The floral display has transformed the white metal grates that surround the main entrance into a colorful extravaganza.

The flower displays were designed to look like the All-Star Game logo and to spell out "All-Star Summer."

All 942 planters, each with 10 flowers, will be kept up all season, likely with a different designs.

The 20 Cincinnati- and baseball-inspired mustache statues placed around the city will be up for a while...where hearing at least until July 31.
