The District of Barriere would like to remind the community that the upcoming registration deadline to participate in the fun and exciting 2019 Barriere Blooms project is fast approaching – July 15.
In order to encourage community residents and businesses to plant flowers and brighten up the town organizers have selected the following contest categories:
• Best Business – Businesses are encouraged to plant flowers outside their business. Winning entry will receive a Barriere Blooms Award Certificate and bragging rights.
• Best Resident Flowering Container – Participating residents will plant flowers in unusual or decorative containers outside their residences. The District will come and take a picture of your display for the public to vote on for their favorite at the Volunteer Barbecue in August. The winning entry will receive $200 cash prize and bragging rights.
• Best Council Member Planter – Members of District of Barriere Council will plant flowers in the cedar planters located in Fadear Park. The winning entry will receive an Award Certificate and bragging rights.
Organizers of the contest are encouraging residents and businesses to use the colours pink, purple and white to “help our town to look bright and inviting for residents and visitors alike”.
