KAMLOOPS - The Kamloops Communities in Bloom Committee, City Council, NSBIA and the KCBIA have partnered on this popular and blooming friendly competition. There will be three locations this year with a total of 12 planters in 400-block of Tranquille on North Shore, the 100-block of Victoria Street Downtown and at the Tourism Kamloops Visitor Centre Uptown.
In this annual Planter Competition, Mayor, City Council, TIB Council and guest politicians will compete for the most creatively planted planter pot. We want to involve residents for the first time this year so we are inviting senior’s residences, student residences and strata groups to become team members. Teams also include a local politician and one of our amazing city gardeners. (Honestly they are the only ones that know what they are doing!)
The planting, judging and prize awarding are fun events. Planting day is June 2nd. Judging in late July or early Aug with details to follow. Winners will be announced at a city council meeting.
