The town of Frisco's Favorite Frisco Things photo contest is in full swing now through Thursday, Jan. 2. To mark the season of celebrating and giving thanks, three hearts are located throughout town to provide a frame for a Favorite Frisco Thing or "mobile" hearts are available for check out from the Frisco Visitor Information Center, located at 300 Main St., to frame a far-flung favorite Frisco thing.
This is a great opportunity to shine the spotlight on a favorite Frisco person, activity, restaurant, view, dog, trail, shop, moment or couple and spread the word about the passion that locals and visitors alike feel for Frisco. Two photo submissions will win a two-night stay for two at the Frisco Holiday Inn, tubing at the Frisco Adventure Park and a few favorite Frisco treats. The photo with the most votes from the public will win.
"There is an incredible amount of passion for Frisco from locals and visitors," said Stacey Campbell, of the Frisco Visitor Information Center. "I often hear folks remark that Frisco has the perfect combination of a charming Main Street, natural beauty and central location. Also, everyone has a favorite Frisco thing that they seek out in town, and now they get an opportunity to share that."
