Twenty-two merchants are participating in a window decorating contest to vie for the People’s Choice Award and the public will be voting! The winner will be announced at the Christmas Celebration December 12 at Heritage Park.
There has been a lot of excitement brought on by the challenge of decorating windows. Some of the merchants have been wagering bets as to who will win the Traveling Trophy. The public is encouraged to stroll the participating merchant windows to vote (one time only) for their favorite Christmas decoration. Voting will commence on Friday, November 27 at Conroe Christmas Celebration – Downtown Window Decorating Contest or voters can go to Experience Downtown Conroe New. All participating storefronts will have a sign with both an alpha number and a QR code directing the public to the website. All voting must be complete by Saturday, December 12 at midnight. Winners will also be chosen for Best use of Theme-“Christmas Around the World”, and Most Creative by the City of Conroe Christmas Committee. Winners will be announced at the Christmas Celebration at Heritage Plaza at 2:00pm on Saturday, December 12.
“It’s so exciting to see everyone decorating just like you used to see in department store windows before there were malls”, said Janice Parrish of Brownlee Jewelers. “This just makes the Downtown Conroe area come alive!”
