Downtown Businesses Show Holiday Spirit 

A Bangor business group is encouraging businesses to get involved in decorating the downtown for Christmas.The city’s third annual holiday decorating contest begins December 1st.Businesses can decorate their storefronts however they like.While the decorations may put people in the spirit of the holiday season, some hope it will infuse the spirit of shopping in folks too.There will be a panel of judges as well as community input to decide which storefronts stand out the most…the judging takes place from December 1st to the 12th.There are cash prizes for the first, second, and third place winners.An online People’s Choice award will also be presented.If your business is interested in competing, register with the Downtown Bangor Partnership by Monday, November 29th.You can email the office at [email protected] or give them a call at 992-4234.
