Now open for the season – Miracle on Farnam presented by The Afternoon, a cherished holiday tradition that is both nostalgic and new.
First launched in 2012, Miracle on Farnam has grown to showcase 23 dazzling window displays – more than ever before – on Farnam St. from Turner Boulevard to 33rd Street. Through New Year’s Day, guests have an open invitation to marvel at true artistry and bask in the glow of the holidays, share the wonder with family and friends, and complement the experience with dinner, cocktails or a warm drink.
Each Miracle on Farnam storefront masterpiece was planned by local nonprofits, students and individual artists. The most miraculous display, determined by online voting, will be awarded $1000 with second and third place prizes of $500 and $250, respectively. Votes can be cast at MiracleOnFarnamOmaha.com through December 25. The winner will be announced on December 26.
