The Greater La Porte Chamber and Downtown La Porte are pleased to announce the 2013 winners of the Holiday Storefront Competition. The winners include 1st Place Rocco's Classic Gallery, 2nd Place Thaddeus C. Gallery, 3rd Place Goose Feathers Gifts and People's Choice Award Engstrom Jewelers.
Downtown establishments competed all month long for the top windows, which were selected by a panel of three area judges, forms submitted to the Chamber office, and Like and comments on the Downtown's Facebook Page.
First place winner Rocco's Classic Gallery, 519 Lincolnway, is a large antique shop which feature several booths of independent antique and consignment items. Sarah Noakes, Store Manager, designed the two very large windows in front of the store by hand. The theme seemed to be green as well with Second Place winner Thaddeus C. Gallery who designed the large gingerbread window out of recycled materials.
For more information or to see pictures of all the windows, please visit the Downtown La Porte Facebook page at www.facebook.com/downtownlaporte. For a reminder on all of downtown's events, the general public can subscribe to the Downtown La Porte calendar at www.cityoflaporte.com.
