CAÑON CITY – More than 100 people woke up early Tuesday morning in Cañon City to celebrate the city’s selection as a finalist for the Hulu show Small Business Revolution.

The show focuses on revitalizing smaller towns across the U.S. by offering makeovers to small businesses from celebrity experts. This upcoming season is the show’s fourth so far.

Cañon City had already made it into the top 10 of small towns around the country, and Tuesday’s announcement shortened the list to six finalists.

The show’s website said the finalists were determined by where “we think we would make the biggest impact.”

The top six are:

  • Cañon City
  • Camas, Wa.
  • Corsicana, Texas
  • Durant, Okla.
  • Searcy, Ark.
  • Washington, N.C.

Thousands of cities and towns applied to be featured on the show. Cañon City cleaned up the town and held a rally in an effort to attract the show to the community in January.

Fans and residents will now determine the winner with a weeklong vote. The winner will be picked on Feb. 26 and filming would begin in March.
