Bright lights kick off downtown season
For the second year, the Chestnut Street District hosted the Bright Friday lighting ceremony and competition in downtown Hays.
During the evening, community members were asked to vote for the Brightest Building in downtown Hays. With help from Nex-Tech Wireless, patrons could stroll through downtown and vote by text. There was a tie this year, with Bella Luna Boutique and the Paisley Pear sharing top honors. DV8 Designs was second.
The event was hosted by the Downtown Hays Development Corp. and sponsored by Emprise Bank and Midwest Energy.
Also, the 12th annual illuminated parade down "Candy Cane Lane" will be at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 8.
