20 Years of Intown Series: 2014

Beautification

Back in 1997, at the request of the mayor’s office, Intown Manchester took over the Downtown holiday decorating. One of the first purchases made by Intown was for 25 lit snowflakes on street lights along Elm Street between Granite and Harrison. As mentioned in our 1997 post, Intown has continued to facilitate decorations in Downtown and in 2014, we began expanding the program! In 2015 alone we installed:

  • Installation of the 40 snowflakes
  • 48 wreaths at City Hall Plaza
  • Lit trees at City Hall Plaza
  • Christmas tree at City Hall Plaza
  • Almost 200 wreaths and bows throughout Downtown
  • Christmas tree at Brady Sullivan Plaza
  • Lit trees at Brady Sullivan Plaza
  • 15 decorated flower pots
  • 12 Santas on lightpoles

Events and Promotion

2014 marked the 10th anniversary of our highly successful annual event, The Taste of Downtown! In addition to this flagship event anniversary, we also played a part in bringing public art to Downtown Manchester! In conjunction with Studio 550, the Utility Art Box project aimed to bring art to three unpainted utility boxes in Downtown Manchester. After a call for artists and a juried panel, three artists were chosen to paint their original artwork on the boxes to much success! In 2016 five more boxes were added to the series, bring quite a bit of color to Downtown! See some photos below!
