Experience Princeton, the nonprofit that promotes the town through placemaking, marketing, and economic development, has begun the Bloom Local campaign in collaboration with the municipality. The campaign runs through May 26 and celebrates the arrival of spring while fostering civic pride, kindness, and community.

“Spring is a time of renewal and growth, and the Bloom Local campaign embodies the spirit of local pride and community connection that defines Princeton,” said Isaac Kremer, executive director of Experience Princeton. “Through this initiative, we hope to inspire residents and visitors alike to take good care of our home, engage in acts of kindness, and actively participate in shaping the future of our community.”

Bloom Local encourages collaboration and mutual support among Princeton organizations and businesses. Activities include a photo contest, in which members of the community can submit photos of Princeton during springtime; business awards, in which Princeton Council recognizes those that create a welcoming, clean, and friendly environment; free saplings given out at Porchfest by the Shade Tree Commission; a mural along Spring Street created by the Arts Council of Princeton; works from the Princeton Makes Artist Cooperative; and flower arrangements by the Garden Club of Princeton.

“Bloom Local will highlight the strong ties among Princeton residents, municipal staff, and our business community,” said Councilwoman Michelle Pirone Lambros. “I’m excited to see all the unique ways participants will embrace the spirit of spring and create a vibrant and welcoming community for all.”
