Downtown Beaufort may very well be a Christmas wonderland this upcoming holiday shopping season, as the merchants of downtown Beaufort in conjunction with Main Street Beaufort, USA have announced a Window and Storefront Decorating Contest.
The public is invited and encouraged to stroll through downtown every Tuesday from 4 to 6pm enjoying Beaufort’s historic buildings in holiday dress and vote for their favorite festive storefront or window display from Tuesday November 20th, through Tuesday December 11th.
Participating businesses will celebrate the season by offering promotions, discounts, specials, tastings and more. Also on hand will be strolling carolers, a barbershop quartet, and Santa himself.
The holiday event is also a Scavenger Hunt with each window having a hidden item for the public to find and add to their voting ballot, with Downtown Beaufort Gift Baskets being awarded to several of the entrants. Ballots and ballot boxes will be located throughout downtown businesses, banks, and at Main Street Beaufort USA’s West Street Extension office.
For more information about the Holiday Storefront and Window Display Contest, please contact Darlene Kelley at 843-379-9740, or Main Street Beaufort, USA at 843-525-6644
