We were so excited when the Hutchinson Chamber of Commerce decided to host a Snowman building contest! We knew right away what we were going to do.
We also knew we were going to go big.
We also knew that we wanted our residents to be involved in the design and build of the project.
We spent a few days building it – and thanks to our awesome team and our talented residents, we present Grandpa Olaf!
Yes, we had to light him up! The kids from the preschool next door would be telling their parents about him, so we knew they would be coming back at night to see him.
We aren’t the only business participating in this year’s event. Businesses from all over Hutchinson have decorated snowmen that you can vote on.
The contest runs from November 29 – December 5. Ballots are available on the Chamber website, Chamber office, Chamber Facebook page, and in participating businesses. We have ballots in a box right next to Grandpa Olaf.
Voters have a chance to win $25 gift cards for local businesses by submitting their ballot. Winning snowmen and ballot voters will be announced on December 8, 2014.
