Main Street Jonesborough is hosting Sweet Scenes, a Valentine’s Day themed walkable window display which continues through Saturday, February 8. Sweet Scenes is a spinoff of the popular Window Wonderland event that is typically held in early January, the event has now transitioned from a winter theme to a Valentine’s Day theme.
Participating merchants will decorate their windows showcasing their creativity and unique styles. The best way to participate and to help your favorite window win is by viewing each display, vote in-person or vote online. Ballots for in-person voting will be available at the International Storytelling Center or at the Visitors Center. Participants can vote in-person up to once per day. You can also vote online by visiting Jonesborough.com/sweetscenes.
The contest will close at the end of day on Feb. 8, the day of Jonesborough’s 5th Annual Chocolate Fest. This is a great opportunity to browse through downtown and choose your favorite window display while enjoying delicious chocolate treats provided by area merchants and restaurants.
There are two ways for merchants to win, the People’s Choice and the Judge’s Choice. The People’s Choice is combined from in-person and online votes while the Judge’s Choice is decided by a panel of local arts professionals. Both award recipients will receive $300 cash. Winners will be announced on Monday, Feb.10.
The walkable window displays depicting Valentine’s Day scenes are sure to get you into the Valentine’s Day spirit. For more information about Sweet Scenes, please visit Jonesborough.com/sweetscenes or Main Street Jonesborough’s Facebook page.
