GREENVILLE– Greenville’s Hometown Holiday Horse Parade presented its first coloring contest for children and adults on Thursday afternoon.
The coloring contest was the brainchild of Joe Wintrow of Wintrow Signs & Designs with the support of the Hometown Horse Parade committee.
“I’ve had this idea for three years and we’re finally making it happen,” said Wintrow. “I have seven really good sponsors that have jumped on board so here we are finally launching it.”
Sponsors for the contest were: Tribute Funeral Homes, Berkshire Hathaway Realtors, Dairy King, Bell Fiole Tanning, My County Link, Main Street Greenville and Commercial Printing.
Berkshire Hathaway provided crayons and colored pencils with each entry form and coloring page.
“Something new this year,” said Hometown Horse Parade chairman, Diana Stebbins. “This was three years in the making and we’re finally going to get it off the ground. It is really going to be neat for the kids.”
Winners of the coloring contest will receive special seating at the 19th Annual Hometown Horse Parade on Saturday, along with prizes.
Age groups include: 7 to 9, 10 to 12, 13 to 15 and 16 and older. Prizes will be awarded to first and second place (16 and over – one prize).
