Holly Springs recognized
Holly Springs is one of hundreds of attractive towns and neighborhoods that will compete this summer in a national contest to find the “Prettiest Painted Places in America.”
The competition, sponsored by the Paint Quality Institute, a leading source of information on paints and coatings, was last conducted in 2000 when towns such as Cape May, N.J., Lake Charles, La., and Telluride, Colo., won top honors.
“The purpose of Prettiest Painted Places is to identify and recognize those towns and neighborhoods that best demonstrate how exterior paint can enhance the appearance of an entire community,” according to Debbie Zimmer, paint and color expert for the Paint Quality Institute in Spring House, Pa.
“Having such an eclectic blend of architecture, Holly Springs is an easy contender in such a competition,” said Stephanie McKinney, director of the Holly Springs Tourism and Recreation Bureau. “We submitted photos we felt best represented Holly Springs and we hope the judges agree that we are one of the most colorful places in the South!”
In September, a panel of judges will choose 60 places as finalists, 10 each from six geographic regions of the U.S.
After further research, a panel of judges from major media outlets will select one small place and one large town or city from each region as the 12 Prettiest Painted Places in America. The winners will be extensively promoted in a national publicity campaign.
