Best Storefront Window Display Contest in Carlsbad Village 2016

 

The holiday season is a terrific opportunity for retailers in the Village to show off their window-dressing talents, and the Carlsbad Village Association is hosting a contest. There’s still time to vote for the 34 shops that are participating for the People’s Choice Award.

It may not be Rodeo Drive, the Miracle Mile, Worth Avenue, Newbury Street or 5th Avenue, but there are some pretty attractive store fronts to enjoy in Carlsbad Village.

Each store has a white snowflake that provides instructions on how to vote – it might be a selfie uploaded to Instagram, or on Facebook.

If you wish to vote you have until December 25th to do so. A prize will be awarded for the best storefront based on social media voting. A second prize will be awarded by the Carlsbad Village Association based on a vote from a committee.

Hi William Feela  - yes, clearly there was quite a bit of effort for some of these windows. I didn't have time to walk past them all.

Hi Endre Barath, Jr.  - nope, we are not in the Village - in an office park. Very few decorations at all!

We have a similar contest going on in Cedaredge. We did a pretty good job this year. Maybe we have a chance of winning one of the prizes. Although the owner of the new pizzaria hired someone to do this lights, and they look amazing. I bet he's going to win first place.

Jeff, that would be so much fun to parade around the village and see all of the window decorations.  Voting of course ... and then having dinner to top off the evening.

I recognize a replica of the "leg" lamp in "A Christmas Story" .  A season classic!

Merry Christmas Jeff Dowler !  I like this kind of community contest. There is something for everybody and the patrons get to enjoy the displays.

Each and every window pane can be framed or made into a Christmas Card. There is a lot of creativity and the labor of love shows brilliantly. 

Merry Christmas and Happy Chanukah!!!

I get that Joe Pryor 

I suspect there were some that were even more impressive Nina Hollander
