WONDERFUL WINDOW… Live mannequins adorned the windows of Main Street businesses during the Hometown Christmas event this past weekend in Watervliet. From 7:00-8:30 p.m. Saturday night, visitors and residents could stroll the downtown area and enjoy the fun attraction, new to this year’s festivities. This display at Wonderfully Quirky depicted baking in the kitchen as the models stayed oh so still. Wonderfully Quirky went on to win 1st prize for the business decorating contest.

DECK THE HALLS… These live mannequins trying to decorate the Christmas tree at Tri-County Computer Services might look a little familiar if you have been at a Watervliet sporting event recently that has cheerleaders. The Watervliet High School Cheer squad served at the live mannequin event this weekend as part of the Hometown Christmas Celebration. The event was well attended for its first year as the windows of nine of the downtown businesses had live mannequins. (TCR photo by Annette Christie)
