The winning business is Scuba Marco located at 1141 Bald Eagle Drive owned by Jeff and Jessi Dawson. The business was presented with Business Decorating Winners Plaque by Business Committee Chairpersons and judges, Kristina Lambros and Marc Creach, and contest Chairman Dave Rice.
Stated Chairs Kristina Lambros and Marc Creach, “This year’s Business Winner had the most elaborate of any of the past winners since the contest began.” Traditionally, past winners have indicated an increase in business due to the public’s visiting the winning property to view the decorations. A special thanks to the Marco Area Chamber of Commerce Director Dianna Dohm who notified the Chamber members of the contest directly via email blast.
