Get ready for the annual Communities in Bloom competition. How will Barrie score this year?
The program began in 1995 with only 29 Canadian communities and has since grown to include hundreds of participating communities in the provincial, national and international editions.
Last year Barrie won overall in the Class of Champions, plus a 5 Bloom rating! Here's what the judges will be looking for this year.
The judges will be visiting Barrie in July to judge our city in the following areas:
Floral display, landscaping, urban forests, overall city tidiness, grass maintenance, community effort, and conservation and environmental influence.
How can you participate?
You can register by visiting: www.communitiesinbloom.ca.
And you can support the non-profit Communities in Bloom Foundation

So get the family involved, and make our city a cleaner, and blooming community for everyone! It's great for the environment and a lot of fun.
Will be participating this year?
