The Town of Bruderheim is working hard to ensure the final preperations are in place for the Communities in Bloom judges.
The town is taking part once again in the national challenge in the Under 4,500 population category.
They're competing against towns like Hanna, Maple Creek (SK), Merrickville-Wolford (ON), Valhalla Centre and Windsor (NS).
The judges, Lucy Chang of Ottawa and Louise Dumouchel of Gatineau, will be evaluating Bruderheim's beauty on July 26, 27 and 28.
Bruderheim officials are urging businesses and residents to tidy up and perfect their properties before the judges arrive.
This year's theme is "Communities and Green Spaces, Celebrating Canada's 150 Anniversary."
The National and International category winners will be announced in Ottawa from September 13 to 16 during the Symposium and Awards Ceremonies.
Last year, Bruderheim won five "blooms" scoring over 82 per cent in the judging. Although they didn't claim first prize, they did score the Community of Gardeners Award.
