12/19/17 – The winners of the Sixth Annual Downtown Beaver Dam Window Decorating Contest have been announced. Kay Appenfeldt with Downtown Beaver Dam Inc says the Parade Committee judged the windows Friday evening. The top prize went to Black Waters Coffee. McKinstry’s Home Furnishings took home second while Twisted Sisters won third. Honorable mention went to Edith’s Cakes and Catering and Mike Wissell Real Estate. Black Waters Coffee receives the traveling trophy to put on display in their business until the decorating contest next year when it travels to the winner of next year’s contest. All winners receive recognition on the Downtown Beaver Dam Inc website and Facebook page. There were 27 entries this year–up from 21 last year. Appenfeldt encourages the community to go down to see the winners as well as the other decorated windows.
