Going for the Gold....Marigolds that is....
A group of school students in the southern New Brunswick area are hoping to break the world record for the most flowers planted in one day.
On June 6,2013 the local schools took to the streets and headed to Main Street to begin the 16th annual Marigolds on Main Street. They have been growing marigold plants for the past few months and now was time to "get'er done"!!!
With amazing teachers, a few parents (and this grandparent) accompanying them, the boys and girls were in high spirits and optimistic that the previous record of 1,215 participants could beaten. All construction work in the area ceased, and streets were closed down to maintain optimum safety for all concerned.
|A detour around an idle piece of heavy equipment is just a bonus!|
|Arriving from all directions to convene on Main Street!|
|Nothing like a warm-up dance to get in the mood to break a record.|
|With the help of plastic spoons, little hands did a lot of work!|
|Just some of the hundreds of children who participated.|
|Two sweet little boys waiting for their turn to dig in!!|
Oh,yeah, in case you are wondering ,although not official...yet.. the record was shattered!!
