SAINT JOHN – As school children kneel in the soil to plant marigolds along the streets of the Port City for a 16th year, they’ll also be part of an attempt to earn a world record.
“It’s going to give us a great confidence boost,” said organizer Barry Ogden, who had confirmed the project was eligible for a record this week.
Every June, Saint John’s Main Street comes alive with orange and gold blossoms.
June 2014 will be our 17th year.
During this time, Marigolds on Main Street has blossomed into community gardens sprouting up all over Greater Saint John. Please join us in June 2014.
