Christmas Window Contest 2016

Christmas sceneDear Merchants,

As you all know Christmas is fast approaching.  As always, we again invite you to join in the spirit of the season by decorating your storefronts/windows.

The criteria for judging is the same as always. The judges will be looking for creativity, originality and adherence to the theme.  The judging is scheduled for December 1, 2016 between the hours of 5:30 and 7:00 pm. This year we have four (4) judges.  One of the judges is from New York. He and his family will be visiting family here and he has graciously accepted our invitation to be a guest judge.  Another judge comes to us from Virginia.  The remaining two judges are local (one residing in Littleton while the other resides on Lake Gaston).

The theme this year opens up a vast arena for creativity.  After polling the judges and getting their input it was decided the theme is “Christmas – Past and Present”.  Use your imagination, work magic, but most of all, have fun.

For more information or if you have any questions please feel free to call 586-7118.

As always we thank you for your participation in this event.
