Businesses dress to impress rodeo style
BUSINESSES across Mareeba turned their shopfronts into the wild west last week to get into the Mareeba Rodeo spirit and win some accolades at the same time.
Domigo’s Coffee took out the award for Best Decorated Small Foyer for their display in their alley-way business, which showcased their family’s rich history within the rodeo, complete with owner Natalie Kurtis’ son’s saddle and photos at the entry way.
The business also won the Best Western Style Dress award for a small business (staff of less than eight).
The award for Best Western Style Dress for businesses employing more than eight people went to Mareeba Kids Campus who really put in a big effort with managing director Karl Thorne dressing as a rodeo queen for the day, while Best Decorated Large Foyer went to QT’s Early Learning who created all the different elements of the rodeo throughout the centre.
Best Decorated Shop Window went to The Seconds Shop.
