Marquette, MI: During the first few weeks of December, more than 20 Downtown Marquette businesses dressed their storefronts in holiday finery and participated in the 2020 Light Up Downtown Marquette holiday decorating contest.

“We’re so very happy to have this many Downtown Marquette businesses compete in this fun and festive competition”, stated Tara Laase-McKinney, Marquette Downtown Development Authority Promotions and Events Coordinator. “So many businesses went all-out with their decorations, and it’s really impressive. With so many negative things happening this year, it’s really wonderful to help bring cheer to our community.”
