‘Jingle’ spirit is encouraged in Enumclaw

Businesses in downtown Enumclaw are encouraged to show off their “holiday jingle” spirit by decorating their storefronts and competing against fellow merchants.

Judges will select first-, second- and third-place winners, choosing those that best carry out the “jingle” theme. Winners will be announced at the start of the annual Christmas parade on Dec. 6 and will receive an official “holiday jingle” trophy.

Participating businesses are encouraged to make Nov. 29 a “sparkly” Small Business Saturday by having their storefronts decorated and remaining open until 6 p.m. so residents can shop and admire the festive decorations.

At 5 p.m. on the  29th, there will be a tree-lighting event on the front lawn of Enumclaw City Hall, 1339 Griffin Ave. There will be holiday carolers, hot chocolate and candy canes.

Businesses have until Nov. 17 to enter the decorating contest. Entry forms have been distributed and extra forms are available at The Enumclaw Courier-Herald. Completed forms should be delivered to The Courier-Herald office, 1627 Cole St.
