Mayor Walsh Announces Deck the Windows of Boston Main Streets Contest Finalists
December 11, 2014
Today Mayor Martin J. Walsh today announced the finalists in the City of Boston’s Deck the Windows of Boston Main Streets contest, a friendly competition between local business owners to beautify and promote the neighborhood Main Streets districts by decorating storefronts for the holidays.
“The Boston Main Streets businesses owners decorated their windows so beautifully in the spirit of the season,” said Mayor Walsh. “Now, I’m asking my fellow Bostonians to visit their neighborhood Main Street Districts to shop and vote on our website for their favorite display. I look forward to celebrating the three most festive holiday windows in the Boston’s Main Street Districts.”
The contest is part of Mayor Walsh’s Holiday Challenge, a campaign encouraging residents to support Main Streets and other local commercial districts during the 2014 holiday season. Participants in the Mayor’s Holiday Challenge pledged to support local business five times during the holiday season, either purchasing gifts, dining, or participating in local holiday events in Main Streets districts. Residents are encouraged to vote online for their favorite holiday-themed windows, starting at 5:00PM tonight.
Local judges reviewed windows in each of the Boston Main Streets Districts and submitted a winner from each district. The public voting process of the contest will conclude on December 17, at 3:00PM. The three businesses with the highest number of votes will be honored on Monday, December 22, at a holiday celebration hosted by Mayor Walsh, at the first place winning business.
