Take Pride Winnipeg!’s 13th annual Winnipeg in Bloom Contest is coming to a close, and you only have a few more days to enter your yard to be judged.
The free contest judges front yards in the city based on curb appeal, innovative features and property cleanliness.
“Gardeners in Winnipeg are passionate and determined,” said Tom Ethans, executive director. “We want to celebrate their efforts and the fabulous curb appeal they add to city streets.”
Judging categories include business and residential, community efforts, apartment blocks and condominiums. The entry deadline is July 5, 2010. Judging will occur during the month of July, with the awards reception held in August at Rainbow Stage.
If your own yard isn’t up to par, you can even enter one of your neighbours.
Entry can be done at any Winnipeg Home Depot location, or online at TakePride.mb.ca.
