The plaza in front of Winter Garden City Hall was a popular gathering place Thursday, Aug. 15, when residents and business owners showed up with their cell phones and an assortment of props for #CityHallSelfie Day.
Afterward, they posted their photos on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter to be part of the worldwide selfie day. Selfies submitted to City Hall also were eligible for the chance to win a $50 Visa gift card.
