In 2008, the City of Saint-Lambert relaunched the traditional Houses-in-Bloom contest. This contest rewards the most beautiful landscapes in our city in a number of categories, and is open to both residents and shopkeepers.
You don't need to register. The Selection Committee will be making its rounds looking for those rare gems at the beginning of July. So now is the time to get ready! Good luck to all!
Planning the Houses-in-Bloom Contest is the responsibility of the organizing committee, which is made up of the head of the Town Planning, Permits and Inspection Department and several citizens. The committee’s mandate is, among other things, to define the selection criteria and supervise the selection process. The members of the 2017 selection committee are: Julie Larose, Marielle Blain, Chantal Charbonneau, Lorraine Guillet et Claire Ménard.
The selection committee is made up of volunteers who are passionate about flowers and landscaping. Their job is to comb the city streets, by sector, and evaluate properties by assigning points based on specific criteria. Thereafter, they meet to compare notes and select the winners.
The City would like to thank the judges who joined the Organizing committee in 2017 to make the rounds of local streets looking for hidden gems: Louise Bisson, Louise Comtois, France David, Paul Dorval, Carole Kelly, Yvon Lainé, François Langevin et Ginette Lemay.
