The recent few days of summer temperatures have flower gardens becoming a riot of colour all over the town. Judges for the Communities in Bloom contest will be arriving in Barriere on July 20. That day they will be attending a function at the fall fair hall, where the theme of ‘Heritage in Bloom’ will be presented by the North Thompson Valley Players. The hall will be decorated with a heritage theme with a number of 4H and and local heritage projects represented. On July 21, the judges will be out and about in the community, as well as touring the local museum, the fall fair facility, the Wildfire Dragon Monument site, and other attractions within the community. Barriere’s Communities in Bloom Committee say they are hoping to be considered for the Heritage award in this year’s contest.
