Do you own or manage property, business or residence in downtown Greensboro? If so, we have the contest for you! Every year Festival of Lights holds a window/facade decorating contest. Windows and/or Facades must use lights and must relate to the theme. This year's theme is Hometown Holidays!!
First prize is an advertising package provided by The News & Record with second and third prizes of theatre tickets and restaurant gift certificates.
There are three categories that you can register in Large Window or Facade, Small Window or Non-Profit Window. New this year is the category for non-profit window -- Downtown Greensboro Inc. and the United Arts Council are teaming together to partner non-profits with vacant store fronts. It gives the non-profit an opportunity to showcase their organization while at the same time brightening up some vacant store fronts.
For more information about the contest or to download the registration form please check out the rules and criteria here.
The Winners (pictured above) from 2008 Festival of Lights were:
First Place -- Mack & Mack
Second Place -- Just Be
Third Place -- Action Greensboro
