Make your vote count this year ... in the 22nd annual Best of the Springs contest.
Voting is open in the Gazette's roundup of what you - our readers - tell us are your favorite businesses, performances and places to go in the region.
Now through Feb. 14 visit thebestofthesprings.com to vote for the city's best in more than 250 categories.
The Best of the Springs magazine will be delivered with your Sunday paper on April 17.
Save the date for the Thursday before publication - April 14 - for the Gazette's annual party before the issue drops. Join us at Pikes Peak Center for great food, fun and advance copies of the issue.
Make sure your voice gets heard. Cast your vote in these next few weeks for best new restaurant, trail to hike, day care, actress, theater performance, hardware store, carwash, bank, climbing wall, bowling alley and so many more.
You can choose from the nominations already listed or write in one of your own. A nomination must have received at least three votes to make it into the top 10 on the official ballot.
Need some incentive to crank up your computer and cast your votes? We'll randomly choose six winners from the pool of voters.
One person will receive a $500 gift certificate to his or her choice of one of the 2016 Best of the Springs winners. The other five will each receive $100 gift certificates.
The only catch? You must vote in at least 10 categories and leave at least one comment.
