16th Annual Brighton Ford

2015 Holiday Window Painting Event

Wow!! What a run!! Hornung Elementary, after 5 years passed the Trophy to Hilton Elementary this year who had not won in 15 years!! Congratulations to Hilton Elementary and Principal Jeff Eisele!!

Our window painting started this year the second week of December and today the Richard Lim Photography Santa pics are now posted!! Check them out! I especially like the one with Jerry Niskar and Zach Kissel- two of our amazing sales staff sitting on Santa lap!

Monday December 7th, Hornung Elementary started off the week, Hilton painted on Tuesday, Hawkins on Wednesday and Spencer on Thursday the 10th. At 4:30 pm the kids came in excited to paint the big windows, some knew what was going on and many were new to this adventure. Each night we were so pleased to see almost double-if not triple the kids that have come in the past!! Exactly what we wanted to see. 

We sipped on hot chocolate with marshmallows and little candy canes, ate some cookies! New this year, we ordered pizza from the Brighton Lil Ceasers for each school from 5-7pm. Then the painting happened of course! Amazing work from each student and school. They turned out Fantastic!! We love them, so Thank you for adding our final decorations of the season!! Don't forget to stop by with your families or friends until the end of the year to show them what a great job you all did- that is if they didn't check them out on Tuesday the 15th when EVERYONE was here!! 

Our MAIN EVENT this year was amazing!! We wanted anyone to join us for our COMMUNITY EVENT for a free night of FUN and to be able to visit the Big Guy-Santa!  It happened and we are so pleased that the attendance more than doubled from last years event.
So here it is.... Almost 1600 voters, 130 pizzas, 1 Flat screen TV giveaway,  a Bounce House & Mechanical Snow Board, a Kilted Magician, A Magical Elf named Twisty, Air Brush Face Painting, Mike and Jon from WHMI and countless memories for so many children getting their annual photo with Santa!
