What’s the best community event in Southwest Roanoke County?
You tell us!
Last year, voters bestowed that honor Project Faith at Faith Christian Church, followed by the annual free show of Broadway showtunes by the Kevin Jones Performing Arts Studio at the Jefferson Center and Festival in the Park in third place. (Technically, that’s not in Southwest Roanoke County, but that’s what the voters said and, after all, a lot of the events that people in SWoCo go to aren’t in the neighborhood anyway.)
In 2010, the voters gave first place to the Kevin Jones Performing Arts Studio show, followed by Festival in the Park and Local Colors.
In 2009, the winner was the Kevin Jones Performing Arts Studio show, with Festival in the Park second and a tie for third between Dickens of a Christmas, the Drumstick Dash and the Strawberry Festival put on by Community School.
What should be recognized this year?
Voting is now open in our fourth annual Best of Southwest Roanoke County reader survey.
You can find the voting form right here (or over in the right-hand rail.)
The voting is open through midnight on Sunday, March 11; we’ll publish the results in our April 20 print edition.
A few new wrinkles: To make it easier to vote, we’ve gone ahead and listed the top six finishers last year in the business categories — although, as always, you can cast a write-in vote if your favorite isn’t already listed.
If you’ve got someone or some thing you think should be recognized, feel free to start a campaign to drum up votes.
Is there someone or something who should be recognized who doesn’t fit into a category? We always have our “best thing not on this list.”
