Here come the judges!

Yarmouth will be examined by judges for the 2017 Communities in Bloom National competition.

They are expected to arrive today, and will tour the area tomorrow.

Mayor Pam Mood says the judges will be examining Yarmouth as a community.

"So I would certainly encourage everyone to make sure their lawns are looking great and their garbage is picked up. It makes a big difference. This competition can put us on the world map and it makes a difference when everyone comes together and does their part."

The judges will be looking for general tidiness, clean streets and properties, beautiful parks, gardens and displays.

Awards will be presented at the National Symposium in Quebec this September.

Yarmouth will host the national event in 2019.
