What’s one of your favourite sites around Grimsby in the Summer?
Ours is the fantastic array of beautiful flowers on offer every single year, flowers that give Grimsby a new lease of life with their undisputable beauty.
The 2014 Bloomfest was attended by thousands of visitors, all who came along to witness the extensive range of flowers and attractions on display for their enjoyment.
The event was organised by Grimsby In Bloom and the event was full of fun for the whole family! Singers, scarecrows and stiltwalkers all paved the way for a number of families to enjoy the festive fun!
The scarecrows may have frightened the children – and maybe even some of the adults – who attended the day, but all found a fun time in the gardens. As the scarecrows were propped up against walls and benches, they would move as passersby would walk on, giving them a considerable fright!
The scarecrows were just one of many attractions available in the fun day!
Professional gardener Nick Hamilton had this to say about the day: “The enthusiasm of people is fantastic. Bearing in mind how much money they had, they have done a superb job.”
“The flowers in containers in Deansgate Bridge on the way in are magnificent. People so often take for granted the hard work that goes in to making a place beautiful.”
Chairman of Bloomfest, Elaine Atkinson said: “The aim this year has been to bring in as many families as possible.
“The Earthbound Misfits have been excellent as ever and the whole event has made people aware of what Grimsby In Bloom is all about.”
She added: “We have already started our campaign for next year and hope more people will join in.”
The results are set to be announced around the 17th September, so be sure to check back for any updates!
