Main Street Jonesborough is hosting Sweet Scenes, a Valentine’s Day themed walkable window display February 1 through February 9. Sweet Scenes is a spinoff of the popular Window Wonderland event that is typically held in early January, this year the event will transition from a winter theme to a Valentine’s Day theme with the announcement of winners taking place during Chocolate Fest on Saturday, February 9.
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 at Main Street Jonesborough’s Facebook page then come down for Chocolate Fest on Saturday, February 9 to see the winners announced.
By voting in-person, you are also entered into a drawing for $50 in JAMSA Bucks (valid anywhere JAMSA dollars are accepted in downtown Jonesborough). 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.
There are three ways for merchants to win, the People’s Choice the Judge’s Choice and the Best Chocolate Stop. 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. Voting for the Best Chocolate Stop will only take place on Saturday February 9 during Chocolate Fest. To place a vote for Best Chocolate Stop, you’ll purchase tickets for Chocolate Fest, sample the Chocolates and let your taste buds pick a winner. When you arrive at Chocolate Fest a sheet will be provided containing all the Chocolate stops. This sheet can be used to mark your vote and then turn that in at the International Storytelling Center. The award recipient for Best Chocolate Stop will receive $100 cash prize.
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 visit Main Street Jonesborough’s Facebook page or call 423.753.1010
