In order to set the mood for the Decatur Beach Party on June 18, the city is sponsoring a window decorating contest with a beach theme. So– what is the Beach Party? Live music, dancing on the square and 60 tons of sand– sound like a good time? You know that Decatur knows how to party!
Our entry for the Window Decorating Contest? We have composed a global sunbather above, complete with an Indian paper mache head, thangka
hands and feet and a hand-made paper fan from Thailand. She is sipping a strawberry drink from an antique lassi cup, enjoying some French Caribbean music and reading Flight of the Mermaid under a Mexican sun.
A number of businesses all over downtown Decatur have entered. Come on over and take a stroll around to view the windows and vote for your favorite! To vote for Mingei’s window, text “Dec mingei” to 80672 . Only one vote per hour from each number! You can vote until June 18, when it is time for the Decatur Beach Party!
