The Historic Downtown Kennewick Partnership will be hosting the first ever annual Painted Chair contest in the Tri Cities on July 19. Chairs may range in style, it could be a bench, kitchen chair, lawn chair, or any other sort of seat. Each contestant must also have a vote box which needs to be decorated and have a slot at the top for vote slips to slide through. Contestants must provide their own chair, decorations, and vote box. Participants in the Painted Chair contest must fill out an entry form and pay $10. Chairs will displayed at Flag Plaza on the corner of Kennewick Avenue and Auburn Street in Kennewick Washington. Visitors who come through will place votes in the vote boxes between 12:00pm and 2:45. Winners will be announced at 2:45, the creator of the winning chair will receive $100, second place will receive $50 and third place will receive $30. Beginning at 3:00 pm there will be a live auction for the chairs, all proceeds will benefit the Second Harvest Tri Cities. Customers who won a chair can pick them up at 5:00 pm.

This sounds fun.

I'm betting the amount of creativity displayed will be phenomenal, plus it's a great way to bring the community together.
