    Once again the Nights before Christmas Candlelight Tour will sponsor a decorating contest for the downtown merchants. If you would like to be considered for this "distinguished" honor and monetary reward, keep these guidelines in mind:
    • Your business must be decorated on or before the Merchant's Holiday Christmas Open House.(Friday, Nov. 8)
    • To be considered for this award, businesses must maintain regular days and hours of operation throughout the year.
    • Decorations must be visible from the street. The idea is to make our downtown appear as a welcome and festive area for visitors and locals regardless of whether the shops are seen during or after business hours.
    • Storefront displays will be judged on creativity, originality, and overall eye appeal.
    • Judges will view the businesses on Main St., if your business is not located within this area and you would like to be considered, please call the Visitors Center (812-265-2956) or email marci@visitmadison.org before Nov. 8th (this year) and let me know.
    Prize money is as follows:
    *Please note: Monetary prize amounts may vary from year-to-year based on event expenses
    • *$250 OR a free listing in the 2021 Visitors Guide (business listed in one category and on the Visit Madison website) and a sign to display during the holiday season
    • *$150 for second place and a sign to display during the holiday season
    • *$100 for third place and a sign to display during the holiday season
    The Nights Before Christmas committee reserves the right to judge this event according to the criteria and means established by the committee. Good luck!
