It's always one of the most anticipated evenings in ANY city. It's a chance for some to walk away with some hardware, but more importantly a title.

I've seen businesses pick up some serious customers when they can lay claim to this title, and it can propel them to heights unseen, longevity for their business, and a whole lot more.

I'm talking about the "Best of Amarillo" awards, and they're back.

Tonight, we'll find out all the different places we need to be checking out if we haven't already. Being nominated is something we need to pay attention to as a consumer, but winning brings a whole different level of expectation.

The best part about these awards is that the community votes on them, so this isn't some suits voting as they do for music and movie awards. This is a true representation of what our community feels is the best.

The awards ceremony tonight at the Amarillo Civic Center will be the first in-person event since the one in 2019. The pandemic had turned it into a virtual type of event where the winners were announced online, but now everyone can get together and celebrate.

When I say these awards are all-encompassing, I mean it. There are 203 categories that will have awards handed out, and there will be a very special guest on hand to give those awards away.

None other than Miss Texas will be in the house for the event. They're doing it up big, and they should. These nominees deserve every second of tonight's event.
