Since 2006, local Jacksonville businesses and the Jacksonville Art Council have partnered together in a holiday door-decorating contest, in hopes to enhance the holiday spirit in the city and the city’s appeal.
Businesses who wish to participate in the holiday door-decorating contest can hang holiday posters and decorations in their windows and on their door. They will then be judged for first, second, and third place prizes based on their effort and creativity.
Emily Lipscomb, president of the Jacksonville Arts Council, invites, “all citizens and visitors to take a riding or walking tour to enjoy the special effort of these merchants to beautify our city for the holidays.”
24 merchants participated in 2013’s contest and the Arts Council hopes that many more local businesses will join in for 2014 and the years ahead.
Lipscomb says that they always welcome new members and are thrilled when new businesses contact them to enter in on the holiday fun; so if you will be relocating your business to Jacksonville, your local moving company can help you move your office so that you can enter your business into this year’s holiday door-decorating contest.
