The wonder of the holiday season will come alive in the windows of downtown Davis businesses beginning Friday, Nov. 29. A total of 34 businesses will be competing for top honors of having the best holiday window decorations in the second annual contest sponsored by Davis Downtown.

A panel of judges will stroll downtown streets, enjoying the festive window displays and determining which business has best captured the holiday spirit. Judging will take place between Nov. 29 and Dec. 12, with window decorations to be on display through Christmas Day.

A People’s Choice Award also will be presented to the business that best captures the community’s heart. Local residents are invited to tour downtown and visit the competitors, then cast their votes online at www.surveymonkey.com/s/DavisDowntownPeoplesChoiceAward.

Voting for the People’s Choice Award will be open from Nov. 29 through Dec. 14. Winners of the contest will be announced during the week of Dec. 16.

“The second annual Davis Downtown Window Decorating Contest is shaping up to be a fun event,” said Stewart Savage, executive director of Davis Downtown. “With 34 businesses participating this year, it is really going to add a huge splash of light and color to the downtown. Visitors to downtown Davis will be in for a treat as they shop for that perfect holiday gift and as they celebrate with friends and family at our wonderful restaurants.”
