Camden — Residents and visitors headed downtown May 13 for the sixth annual Camden Is Blooming.

Children's activities, sidewalk sales, P.AW.S.' Spring Fling and the opening of the Camden Farmers' Market in its new location at 116 Washington St. were some of the featured events during the day.

The event, which is sponsored by the Camden Area Business Group, coincides with Camden's Second Saturday program which will have a different theme each month.

"At the old Tannery site"?  This is the time to rename for the future of the old site. "Riverside Park"? "Camden Tannery site"?

And more, perhaps?
