The City of Charlottetown is pleased to announce the winners of its annual Make Charlottetown Bloom program.

The local program, in association with the national Communities in Bloom program, is designed to reward those who maintain buildings and landscapes within City limits. Businesses and residents can enter themselves or nominate someone else.

"The Make Charlottetown Bloom Awards provide an opportunity to recognize and thank the residents, businesses and organizations in our community who have gone out of their way to help us enhance our neighbourhoods," said Charlottetown Mayor Clifford Lee. "To those we have acknowledged at the award ceremony and everyone who submitted a nomination, thank you for the time and effort you’ve invested in the Capital City."

Entries are judged based on design, variety, colour, unique features and maintenance. Some of the categories include: commercial; flower gardens; neighbourhood pride; and environmentally friendly gardens, such as those requiring low maintenance and limited use of water.

"Make Charlottetown Bloom participants take such pride in creating and maintaining beautiful properties, and we want to congratulate them for their hard work and dedication," said Deputy Mayor Stu MacFadyen. "A big thanks to the judges, volunteers, sponsors and Make Charlottetown Bloom committee for helping us make this award ceremony possible each year."
