Window decorating in Lexington
This year we are partnering with businesses throughout Lexington for a window decorating contest. Associations and artists will decorate store windows with a Francophone theme between March 5th and March 11th. A panel of juges from the Lexington Center Alliance will juge the windows the afternoon of March 11th. Winners will be announced at Voyages en Francophonie.
Check out the windows of Hammond Residential, La Très Petite Crêperie, Eccoli, and Re/Max downtown Lexington as well as MA France and Marcello Salon in East Lexington.
Since 2014, Voyages en Francophonie has taken place in Lexington with the support of Lexington-Antony Sister Cities which is part of the Lexington Tourism Committee.
With the participation of tens of volunteers and professionals, as well as other francophone associations such as French for Kids from Lexington, the Lexington Public Schools language departments, Early Language School from Sudbury, and more than a thousand visitors, Voyages en Francophonie lets Boston's francophone community showcase their incredible diversity and talent.
