Visible Along High Street
New for 2017, Downrigging Weekend adds a maritime spectacular to the opening night schedule. Boats of all sizes, shapes and shades will be illuminated, festooned and otherwise dolled up with lights, and then paraded down High Street for all to see and enjoy. The boats, trailers and tow vehicles will be judged for originality, design and over-the-top wattage, with $1,000 of prize money distributed in the following categories:
MOST ORIGINAL / $250: Awarded to the most original entry in thought and presentation, with special attention to currency of theme of concept, humor and conveyance of a thought or statement.
MOST TWINKLE FOR THE BUCK / $250: Awarded to the entry that demonstrates special attention to engineering and project design to achieve efficient output of decorative lumens.
KOLOSSAL KILOWATT – GRAND PRIZE / $500: Awarded to the entry that achieves the best combination of enormity of output, wow appeal and general over-the-top appearance.
