Frozen In Time

Frozen In Time

On Saturday, February 22nd, from 2 to 4 p.m., the businesses of Grand Haven Main Street will be showcasing their favorite Nursery Rhymes during the tenth annual Frozen in Time. Frozen in Time is a window display competition, complete with live mannequins and an Oscar-style awards ceremony.

Many Main Street businesses will be participating, and each one will feature live, “frozen” mannequins depicting a scene from a favorite nursery rhyme. Three honorary judges will be choosing a “Jurors’ Choice” Award, and the public is invited to wander throughout the district, matching the nursery rhymes with the corresponding storefront on a special scorecard, and cast their vote for the “People’s Choice” Award.

The official Frozen in Time zone encompasses businesses along Washington Avenue from Harbor Drive to Beacon Blvd and 7th Street between Washington and Madison. Scorecards are available at all participating businesses.

Frozen in Time will end promptly at 4 PM, followed by a special awards ceremony at 4:30 PM at the Tri-Cities Historical Museum, 200 Washington Avenue.  The Jurors’ Choice and People’s Choice awards will be announced.  The public is invited to come and meet the live mannequins and bring their completed scorecards to be entered into a drawing for cash and door prizes donated by sponsoring Main Street businesses.  (You must be present to win.)
