We need your creative flare to create a fun and unique experience for anyone strolling downtown!  Our downtown is for the community of Red Wing and whenever possible we can to provide an opportunity to share your creations and winter is not exception.

Here are two opportunities for any business, group, family or individual to participate with your creativity.

  • Winter Planter Contest – Cash prizes for 1st ($100), 2nd ($75) and 3rd ($50) place winners, voted by our Facebook fans.  We had so much fun with this last year and cash prize winners donated their winnings to their favorite non-profit.  Join the fun and ad some flare to our downtown.  Join the contest or support decorating the planters by filling out this online form.
