In a surprise upset, DeLand beat out favorite Winter Park to challenge Winter Garden in the Orlando Sentinel’s interactive Best Downtown campaign (http://interactive.orlandosentinel.com/bracket/otherdowntown/index.php). Both DeLand and Winter Garden are historic downtowns that have put enormous effort into reviving their main streets in recent years.

And then, another surprise: Mount Dora vs. Avalon Park. One of Central Florida’s oldest and best-known downtowns up against a newcomer on Orlando’s east side.

Now, we’re down to the Final Four. It’s a new day/new bracket! Every vote counts now.

VOTE DELAND  http://interactive.orlandosentinel.com/bracket/otherdowntown/index.php before Thursday, Dec. 12, at noon. Help choose who will make it to the final match-up.
