As part of the Poage Landing Days Celebration, downtown businesses and churches are invited to participate in the storefront display contest.

The theme is “Life Along the River” and there are two categories: Judge’s Choice and People’s Choice.

Any business, church or organization with a storefront in the designated area of 13th Street (the Paramount) and 18th Street (Ashland Alliance) from Carter Avenue to Greenup Avenue can participate.

Displays must be visible from the street and must not infringe upon the public right of way.

Cost is $15 for Main Street members and $25 for nonmembers.

Displays must not be altered during or after the first viewing day except to repair any damage.

Participating businesses will feature the sign “VOTE FOR ME” in their windows. Voting will continue through Sept. 17 at the close of Poage Landing Days. Winners in both categories will be contacted the following week and an announcement will be made.
