Holiday Hop Decorations Contest &

DADA is ready to deck the halls, shops, galleries, businesses and residences of The Downtown Arts District for the annual DADA Holiday Hop set for Friday, December 2nd from 7-10 PM and we need YOUR help!

During the December 2nd hop DADA is asking the public to come down and let us know which location had the “Best All Around Outdoor DADA Holiday Hop Decorations” (window and store front) and “Best All Around DADA Holiday Hop Decorations” (window, store front and interior of the location).

Hop goers will be asked to check out the locations and select their favorites during the DADA December Gallery Hop. The official ballot will be available at the DADA Info Booth located in the 600 block of N. Trade Street. All selections  need to be returned by 9 PM prior to the Hop closing at 10 PM. Hop goers who select a favorite and turn in their choices will be entered into a drawing for a prize pack from Mast General Store!

The locations selected by the public will win their DADA Membership for the 2017 year. Winners will also be presented with a winner’s certificate from DADA. The Best All Around will take possession of the DADA Trophy and be able to display it at their location during  the year 2017! The beginning of a "who has the trophy" tradition!
