Don’t miss the upcoming 2nd Saturday Downtown urban street fest on January 12. By now, most of you know to go to their website and click on “Event Info” for their lively entertainment schedule (click here). I was just downtown this past weekend, and most of Congress Street is open again after a long construction period for the Sun Link modern streetcar. Hurray.
One of the fun things to do is roam around Congress Street and 6th Avenue, looking for gray living statues from the Parasol Project. They move only when you give them money, otherwise they are still like statues.
But more importantly, go to their website to find out which stores won the 3rd Annual Holiday Decorated Window Contest — back on 2nd Saturday in December, 2012. You’ll be surprised by the results. Click here for the winners and photos of 1st, 2nd, Most Creative, Best Use of Humor, Honorable Mention. I liked the honorable mentions, especially the one on Scott Avenue. Congratulations to the winners for their hard work.
