2021 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.  Once again Downtown Development has teamed up with Brandy McCandless, GRPD Marketing Supervisor, and Adam Miller, Graham Area Business Association President and owner of Frank’s Jewelry to bring the Window Decorating Contest back to downtown!

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 2021.  Business owners have worked hard to decorate their store’s windows and look forward to learning who wins on Sunday, December 5, 2021 during the Graham Recreation & Parks virtual Christmas Tree lighting ceremony.  

A special “thank you,” to Artist, Lindsey Stimpson for helping to enhance some of the windows by painting holiday scenes on them.
