Deck the District Wreath Decorating CompetitionThe public is invited to participate in the Clearwater Downtown Development Board‟s 2nd Annual "Deck the District Wreath Decorating Competition" to be held in conjunction with the Downtown Partnership's Miracle on Cleveland Street and the city s Holiday Light Up downtown.


Cash prizes of $100, $50 and $25 for first, second and third place winners respectively will be announced at the Friday, Dec. 4 downtown holiday lighting event. Attendees are invited to vote for their favorite to choose the winner of he $25 People's Choice prize.

Wreaths entered in the competition will be displayed around Station Square Park the evening of the event. They must be made from all non-perishable materials, decorated by the person submitting the entry and must be all-original, one-of-a-kind. They may be up to 24 inches in diameter and must weigh no more than five pounds. No wreaths containing live greenery will be accepted.

Wreaths must be submitted in person Dec. 4 between the hours of 11:30 and 1:30 p.m. at Station Square Park, 612 Cleveland St. Only one entry per person will be accepted and an entry form will be available on-site and must be completed and submitted with the entry.

“We thought this would be an excellent way to engage the public in the holiday lighting celebration at the newly renovated Station Square Park,” said Downtown Manager Courtney Orr. “With Miracle on Cleveland Street and the official tree lighting with Santa, we thought a wreath contest would be uniquely downtown.”

The annual Holiday Light Up Downtown and Miracle on Cleveland Street is free, open to the public and slated to begin at 5:30 with the light-up at 7:30 p.m. It will feature carolers, vendors and downtown business specials. Wreath contest winners will be announced immediately following the light-up ceremony.
