Barrington Blooms begins today, runs through April 27


Barrington Blooms, a decoration contest for stores in town, begins today, April 20 and will run through next Saturday. Residents will have the opportunity to cast their votes for best decorated storefronts at the Barrington Business Association's Facebook page.

The weeklong event will also be hi-lighted by an April 25 Blooms Bubbles and Bistro fund-raiser. Tickets are $25, and will include food from local restaurants and raffles. The event will be held at Grapes and Grains on Bosworth Street from 6 to 8 p.m. All proceeds will support the Barrington Business Association's efforts to beautify the town, encourage new business and promote Barrington as a destination.

For tickets, call 245-2100 or check the BBA's Facebook page.

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
