The Texas Downtown Association’s annual People’s Choice awards resulted in Yoakum’s Grand Theater winning, by popular vote, the state’s Best Economic Game Changer.  Over 450 people cast their votes for The Grand Theater during the period of Oct 16-19.   The Grand Theater beat out highly regarded entries from Bastrop, Ennis, Elgin and Buda.

In addition, The Grand Theater is a finalist for the President’s Award.   The TDA, a statewide non-profit organization with over 400 member cities, accepts yearly nominations for its nine President’s Awards.  Unlike the People’s Choice, the President’s Awards winners are chosen by an esteemed panel of experts.   The winners will be announced at the TDA annual meeting in Corpus Christi on November 7.
