Bright Friday winners announced


Hays Downtown Development Corp. on Tuesday announced the winners of the "Brightest Building" contest, held in conjunction with Bright Friday activities last week.

Paisley Pear, 1100 Main, brought home the award, the downtown group said. Voting was done via text courtesy of Nex-Tech Wireless.

The third annual Bright Friday, sponsored by Emprise Bank and Midwest Energy, foreshadows this weekend's FrostFest parade in downtown Hays.

The 13th annual parade is scheduled to step off at 6 p.m. Saturday.
