2020 Window Decorating Contest

Downtown districts are places of shared memory where the entire community still comes together to live, work and play. A vibrant, decorated downtown can attract customers by making the area more enjoyable and inviting.  This holiday season the City’s Downtown Development, Graham Recreation & Parks, and Graham Area Business Association have collaborated to present a downtown window decorating contest.

To celebrate Graham’s unique, historic downtown, awards will be given to businesses in the downtown area for the best Christmas/Holiday window displays. Three awards will be given out. A first place, second place, and third place trophy will be awarded to the top three windows with the most votes. We need you to participate!  You are the judge.  Go downtown shop, eat, and scan a QR code on any of the window decorating contest posters to select your favorite decorated window.  It’s the people’s choice awards for 2020.  Business owners have worked hard to decorate their store’s windows and look forward to learning who wins on Sunday, December 6, 2020 during the Graham Recreation & Parks virtual Christmas Tree lighting ceremony.  

A special “thank you,” to the Leos Creative Agency for helping to enhance some of the windows by painting holiday scenes on them.
