Glockenspiel wins Mount Angel chamber decoration contest
The Mount Angel Chamber of Commerce hosted a facade decorating contest among its member businesses, and the Glockenspiel was awarded first place.
"It was so exciting to see everyone get in the holiday spirit and the fierce competition between businesses," Kristi Brackinreed, secretary of the chamber, wrote in the chamber newsletter. "We really appreciate your support in making the town look more festive."
Judges took to the streets of Mount Angel and each picked their top four. The business with the most overall points received first place.
Other businesses that participated are: Old Stone Coffee, Bochsler's Hardware, Grant Company, Consolidated Business Services, Sin-able Sweets, Mount Angel Sausage Co., Jamie's Barber Shop, Mount Angel Pharmacy, Butsch Insurance, Bierhaus, Mount Angel Auto Body and Touch of Bavaria.
Brackinreed said next year's contest will likely have additional awards and categories to recognize more businesses.
