Contest: Deck the Windows

12/13/2012 12:06:00 AM
Mayor Thomas M. Menino today announced the 20 finalists in the City’s Deck the Windows of Boston Main Streets contest, a friendly competition that tests the creativity of local businesses and promotes neighborhood Main Streets business districts by asking them to decorate their storefronts for the holidays. Residents are encouraged to vote online for their favorite holiday-themed windows. The contest is part of Mayor Menino’s Deck the City campaign, encouraging both residents and business owners to celebrate the holiday season by decorating their homes and local businesses districts.

            “We’ve had a fantastic turnout of Main Streets businesses that decorated their windows in the spirit of the season this year,” Mayor Menino said. “Now I’m asking Bostonians to take stock of the very best and to vote on our website for their favorite display. Over the next week, voters will determine the three most festive holiday windows in the Boston’s Main Street districts.”

            The Deck the Windows holiday storefront decorating competition tests businesses’ creativity during the holiday season.  More than 400 windows were decorated by Wednesday, November 28.  Last week, local judges reviewed windows in each of the Boston Main Streets districts and submitted a winner from each of the 20 Main Street districts. The public voting stage of the contest will conclude one week from today on December 18, at which time online voting will determine the winner. The top three businesses will be announced on Thursday, December 20 by Mayor Menino.
