Photographs of each participating business’s storefronts can be ‘liked’ on Facebook for a vote. The album can be viewed at https://bit.ly/2Bykr0V. The storefront displays with the most likes will be awarded first, second and third place. 

You can win, too!

One lucky person will be the winner of $50 in Downtown Dollars. To enter the raffle to win downtown dollars, simply take a picture in front of your favorite storefront display and share the photo with us on Facebook.
