Decorated homes, storefronts and business found city-wide. Residents encouraged to vote on best holiday and themed displays.
The City of Canandaigua has released its map of decorated homes and storefronts across the city limits, as part of a new “socially distanced” celebration in honor of the Fourth of July. In lieu of the typical parade and community picnic, private residences and local businesses are instead participating in a new decorating contest, sharing displays in the spirit of the holiday and this year’s theme of “Unsung Heroes.”
The Canandaigua BID will be hosting a series of small events on Friday, June 26 to kick-off the celebration and the reopening of many downtown stores and local businesses. At 4:00 p.m., traffic will cease downtown for a total of 2 minutes, as the BID hosts a massive ribbon cutting across Main Street. Over 500 American Flags will line the downtown district throughout the day and more than 50 mini-ribbon cutting events will take place from 12:00-3:00 p.m., as shop owners open their doors for the first time in several months.
