Hoboken Chamber of Commerce President Mike Novak announced the Chamber's sponsorship of the first-ever holiday decorating contest!
Better than that, it's open to businesses and residences.
Meaning everyone! Simply register by December 13th at email@example.com. If LA (Little Avenger) is game, we're in.
This December the Hoboken Chamber of Commerce will sponsor its first annual holiday decorating contest.Well, GA loves this idea. It's an old-fashioned, creative way for residents to 'get in the spirit', to promote our local businesses and incentivize all of us to decorate our Hoboken streetscape.
The contest is open to business and residences that decorate their front doors and entryways. Both groups will be judged in separate categories, with awards given to the first, second and third place winners. The grand prize in each category is $500, with the runners-up winning $250 and $100 respectively.
The business that wins the grand prize will also receive a bonus, including $3,000 worth of advertising in local publications.
“We're looking to help make the city more festive for the holidays and this is a great way to get people more excited to get out and show their creativity," said Chamber president Michael Novak.
Thanks for waking up, Mr. President!

Well, it looks like Novak dialed in someone else's idea: Joe Mindak from H-Mag. Joe thought up the great holiday streetscape design concept.
Joe Mindak, how about running for Hoboken Chamber of Commerce president? If Rory Chadwick doesn't want to.
