From a daring idea to a string of championships. From one woman to a dedicated group of volunteers. From a single basket of flowers to the Prettiest Little Town in Alberta.
Over 25 years, Millet has achieved an international reputation for our beautiful gardens, green spaces, and floral displays. Our many Communities in Bloom accolades include overall provincial titles in 1997 and 2006, overall national wins in 2001 and 2007, and a Class of Champions national title in 2017, as well as multiple awards for our heritage and floral displays. We have achieved excellence in all aspects of Communities in Bloom: Floral Displays, Landscaping, Urban Forestry, Community Appearance, Heritage Conservation, Environmental Action, and Community Involvement. Our evaluation scores have improved every year as we create more and more showstopping projects. This year is no different, as we prepare to show off our town through Communities in Bloom’s virtual symposium. Despite challenges ranging from a pandemic to a devastating storm, Millet in Bloom has once again created stunning displays that represent the pride and resilience of our town.
