Downtown decorating contest gearing up
Heart of Howell’s storefront decorated for last year’s contest.
The downtown Howell Holiday Storefront Decorating Contest is returning.
Businesses in downtown Howell are encouraged to get into the holiday spirit and show off their creativity by decorating their storefronts and/or buildings to help kick off the season. The contest, sponsored by Cobb-Hall Insurance, is held in conjunction with the Fantasy of Lights.
Two new awards are added this year: People’s Choice and Mayor’s Choice, both of which come with a $250 cash prize. Voting for the People’s Choice will be online and text-to-vote.
Participating businesses must have decorations in place before voting begins at 8 a.m. Monday, Nov. 23. Voting ends at 8 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 29.
