It was a wet but warm evening for the Annual Beaver Dam Holiday Parade last night. The event, sponsored by Downtown Beaver Dam Inc., drew over 50 entries from local service organizations, emergency responders, churches, political candidates and local officials. In addition, 22 downtown businesses decorated their windows as a part of a new contest. The winner, as chosen by the public, will get a traveling trophy and top billing on the Downtown Beaver Dam Inc. website. Judging forms are available at the Chamber, McKinstry’s and the Beaver Dam Antique Mall. Members of the voting public are automatically entered in a drawing for $50. The winning business will be announced on December 20.
