Win­dow dis­play com­pe­ti­tion

Show off your busi­ness ahead of 2016 fes­ti­val

Isis Town and Country - - News -

LO­CAL traders are be­ing en­cour­aged to take ad­van­tage of the Childers Fes­ti­val and pro­mote their town and their busi­nesses through a win­dow dress­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

Di­vi­sional rep­re­sen­ta­tive Coun­cil­lor Bill Trevor said the Childers Fes­ti­val was a sig­nif­i­cant plat­form to dis­play the re­gion to its best ad­van­tage to tens of thou­sands of peo­ple.

“There are var­i­ous ways lo­cal busi­nesses can get in­volved in the fes­ti­val and I know many have grabbed the op­por­tu­nity with both hands,” Cr Trevor said.

“The Childers Butch­ery has even crafted a 2016 Childers Fes­ti­val sausage and Vint­ner’s Se­cret will re­lease the 2016 Childers Fes­ti­val wine, a sparkling rosé.

“How­ever get­ting in­volved in the fes­ti­val can be as sim­ple as par­tic­i­pat­ing in our win­dow dec­o­rat­ing com­pe­ti­tion to draw fes­ti­val-go­ers in to your busi­ness and show them that the en­tire town is right be­hind the cel­e­bra­tions.”

Cr Trevor said the com­pe­ti­tion, or­gan­ised in partnership with the Childers Cham­ber of Com­merce, car­ried the theme of A Taste of Childers.

“Peo­ple travel from all over the state to at­tend the fes­ti­val and ex­pe­ri­ence A Taste of Childers so it is only fit­ting that our shop fronts dis­play this mes­sage loud and proud through win­dow dec­o­ra­tions.

“Any busi­ness within the post­code 4660 can par­tic­i­pate.”

En­try form­scan be found at the Childers Ser­vice Cen­tre or on­line at bund­aberg.qld.gov.au.

Nom­i­na­tions close Fri­day, July 15, and all win­dow dis­plays must be com­pleted a min­i­mum of two weeks be­fore the fes­ti­val and re­main in place un­til Monday, Au­gust 1.

WIN­DOW DRESS­ING: The Old Phar­macy was one of nine Childers busi­nesses that got into the spirit of the Childers Fes­ti­val with a win­dow dis­play com­pe­ti­tion.
