“The last two year’s displays really added a festive and creative element to the Courthouse Square,” event organizer George Hawver stated. “This year, we’re hoping more businesses take advantage of this opportunity to not only display their creativity but also advertise their business in a central location. It is so nice to hear the comments from people, especially children who like to get up and get their photos taken with the displays. I’m hoping for more participation this year and look forward to seeing everyone’s creativity on display.
