For all its quaintness, Georgetown is only ok when it comes to holiday decorations, particularly with the retail stores. True, most stores try to dress up a little, but it could be so much better with a bit more effort.
And the BID is trying to kick start that effort. Right now they’re running a contest for 15 stores to compete for the best holiday decoration. Apparently the contestants are limited to using only four pieces of material, which has lead to such entrants as a dress made of macaroons.
You’re supposed to vote by going to the BID’s Facebook page and “liking” the best window, but when GM checked last night there wasn’t anything on the Facebook page about the contest. So maybe they’re still working out the kinks.
Here’s a better way to vote: go to the stores that have great displays, like Patisserie Poupon or Martin’s, and just patronize them! And tell them that they look great.
And for the record, GM likes the star over Wisconsin and M, but he doesn’t quite understand the wavy lines.
One response to “Vote on the Best Storefront”
Hi Topher – thanks for promoting the BID’s first holiday window contest. Here’s the link to the photo album on the Georgetown Facebook page. We’ve posted several times about it since it started in early December, and it’s also an “album” under “Photos”. Many people have voted, and voting ends on Dec. 16th. It’s also in the weekly BIDness with a link to the FB page and also on the BID’s website. Let us know if you need anything and thanks for promoting it. The merchants are very excited about it. http://www.facebook.com/OfficialGeorgetownDC#!/media/set/?set=a.519579674727990.121001.160730333946261&type=3
