The Cotulla Main Street Program hosted the city’s annual downtown business decorating contest in time for the Christmas holiday, and several local stores dressed their shopfronts in the theme of the season. Judging of the eight entries was made by invited guest Peter Salinas, chief deputy of Frio County, and awards were presented in December to the judge’s choice as well as to the winner of the people’s choice, with local residents having selected their favorite. The Judge’s Choice Award went to the offices of H&R Block on the corner of Front Street and Hwy 97, where windows were dressed as Santa’s Workshop, complete with toys and memorabilia of yesteryear, snow and colored decorations. The People’s Choice Award went to NAPA Auto Parts, whose storefront was decorated with a Christmas tree, a giant fireplace, and stacks of colorfully wrapped gifts. Main Street Assistant Coordinator Margie Gonzalez is extending thanks on behalf of the program and City Hall to all those who took part.
