Window Decoration Contest • November 23 - December 6

We want to encourage downtown businesses to decorate their storefronts just in time for the Holiday Parade that comes through downtown on Saturday, November 23. We are offering a first place $50 cash prize (& bragging rights) to the business judged “The Most Wonderful Winter Window”. As well as a $25 second place and $15 third place prize. Please have your window ready for judging to begin on Saturday, November 23. The community members will judge the windows. We will have an online voting system (no paper ballots). People can vote through December, 6. The winner will be announced at the Tree Lighting on December 7.  Please decorate your window in accordance with this year’s parade theme, “The Magic of a Hometown Holiday”.  This is a great way to help make our Downtown as festive as possible for the holidays. There is no fee to participate but you must register!

Small Business Saturday is a national campaign to encourage shoppers to shop local during the holidays.

This is a co-op marketing campaign, your investment will be spent on marketing and advertising. We ask that everyone comes up with a discount, sale or promotion that we can advertise. We will be doing a central check-in area for shoppers to pick up a Shop Small tote bag, list of participating stores, and other goodies here at the DDL Office (109 N. Broad St. STE 100) from 8-Noon or until supplies last.
