This summer’s display window theme is Keweenaw Music Traditions and aims to celebrate the roll music plays in our community life. Downtown businesses were invited to create a storefront window display that highlights an aspect of the Keweenaw’s musical heritage while incorporating goods or services offered for sale.
In Calumet’s Historic downtown district, we are fortunate to be surrounded by music: live music and open mic. nights featured at bars and cafés; prominent performers on the stage at the Calumet Theatre; piano lessons in the front parlor of the Norwegian Lutheran Church parsonage and this summer, a concert series at the Keweenaw Heritage Center at St. Anne’s.
Fourteen merchants participated in the window display contest.
Windows were judged on the following characteristics:
Connection to Theme (Keweenaw Music Traditions)
Originality and Creativity
Use of Space
Cleanliness of Displays and Windows
The windows were judged by a panel of Michigan Main Street Managers and volunteers from all over the state attending the Michigan Main Street Quarterly Conference held in downtown Calumet on June 16-17, 2009.
