Marigolds On Main Street Celebrates 15th Year

Main Street getting the golden treatment thanks to hundreds of kids planting marigolds.

Marigolds on Main Street is celebrating its 15th year and organizer Barry Ogden tells CHSJ News he will run into young adults who reflect on the experience.

He believes empowering children is a reason why the event has been successful for so long and taking ownership in the community helps reduce vandalism and keeps kids out of trouble.

Other communities will also be planting the golden flowers, including Quispamsis, Sussex and St. Stephen.
