Twinkle Town Decorating Contest ~ Business & Residential
You are familiar with our annual Festival of Lights competition... but this year we are back with a twist! "Twinkle Town" is a competition that combines the downtown Ionia decorating competition with the "Festival of Lights" residential light competition. NEW THIS YEAR.... "Business OFF the Bricks category" provides the opportunity for businesses outside of "Main st." to participate in the fun of showing off their holiday spirit! Let your creativity go wild, you could win $200... and have a great time doing it.
We will kick it all off with on December 5th with a "Twinkle DOWN-Town" Open House.
Since we are unable to host our usual Hometown Holiday parade... we are encouraging our downtown businesses to be our stationary "parade floats" this year. In this "reverse" style parade, your family can either cruise or stroll our beautiful Main st., looking at the holiday decorations, and stopping in to businesses who are open for shopping & treats.* This is a great time to enter to win one of 13 local prize baskets from the Participating Businesses of '13 Days of Christmas on the Bricks' !
But wait! Before you go home, make sure to download our "Twinkle Town" map. Driving around looking at the rest of the lights (Business OFF the Bricks & Residential) while listening to Christmas music is the PERFECT end to the evening.
*Please follow safety guidelines and be respectfully of any restrictions/regulations at each establishment.
For business who are not able to participate in 'Twinkle Town' or 'Twinkle DOWN-Town', we are offering an option to include up to 100 pieces in goody bags to be given to families. You may include small items as well as promotional materials. Let us know and we will arrange for pick up/drop off.
