THE BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT GETS IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT LIGHTING UP OVER 15 STOREFRONTS ON MIRACLE MILE

The Business Improvement District of Coral Gables partners up with the Fashion Department of the Miami International University of Art & Design during the holiday season for the Holiday Storefront Decorating Contest.

Coral Gables, Fla.- November 23, 2015- The Business Improvement District (BID) of Coral Gables is lighting up for the holiday season announcing its annual Holiday Storefront Decorating Contest on Miracle Mile. Local talent from the Fashion Department of the Miami International University of Art & Design will curate and bring Miracle Mile’s storefronts to life.

Downtown Coral Gables invites locals and visitors to come to historical Miracle Mile and enjoy the third Annual Downtown Coral Gables Storefront Decorating Contest, beginning November 24, 2015. Downtown businesses will compete for top honors and coveted prizes, such as the Best Holiday Window Decoration of 2015 and the People’s Choice Award.

The Business Improvement District once again partnered with the Miami International University of Art & Design, pairing teams of students with Coral Gables stores to work on their storefront decorations. Each team was provided $1,000 to decorate the storefront. During the contest, a panel of judges will stroll Miracle Mile and observe the festive window displays to determine which business best captured the holiday spirit. The contest will continue through December 24 with window decorations to be on display throughout the holiday season.

The Holiday Storefront Decorating Contest includes a People’s Choice Award. The community is invited to tour Downtown Coral Gables and visit participating businesses and, after viewing the wonderful storefronts, cast a vote for the People’s Choice Award online at www.shopcoralgables.com

“Coral Gables is a must-see destination during the holidays,” said Marina Foglia, Executive Director of the BID. “We are excited to have our local talent beautify each storefront and truly assist in making the city live up to its name; The City Beautiful.”
