Sign up for the 2017 Downtown Peterborough Storefront Holiday Decorating Contest and help make downtown Peterborough a fun place to shop this holiday season! Rules and Regulations: Eligible businesses must be located in downtown Peterborough between the boundaries of SMS Route 202 North, West Peterborough Union Street, Monadnock Plaza, and Intersection of Old Street Road and 101. To be eligible, businesses must be locally owned or independently operated, and clearly visible from the sidewalk. How to Enter: A registration must be submitted to participate. Participants may either complete and return their application by completing the online form on PeterboroughChamber.com, or if you prefer to fill out a hard copy, hard copies can be dropped off to the GPCOC at 10 Wilton Road or email email@example.com After registering, it’s time to decorate! We encourage creativity, originality, and liberal use of lighting! Decorations need to be in place by 6pm on Friday, December 1. Between December 1 and December 11, our panel of judges will be making the rounds and selecting the winners. Judges for the event are community members volunteering their time to carefully check out each and every display and vote. In addition, this year there will be a People’s Choice award, with the winner based on reactions to the photos we will display on our Facebook page. Photos of each registered business will be taken during the evening hours (when it’s dark) between December 1 and 3. These photos will be posted in an album on Facebook, and will be used for voting for the People’s Choice award. Voting for the People’s Choice award will begin Monday, December 4, and end at 5pm Sunday, December 10. Winners will be announced during the week of December 11. If you have any questions about the Holiday Decorating Contest, please call Sean Ryan at 603-924-7234 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for participating! Happy holidays from GPCOC!
