Downtown merchants will be decorating their windows using the theme 'Light Up the Holidays.' Each will creatively decorate their windows (quality of lighting, not quantity) using an array of lights. Windows will be completed by noon on December 2, just in time for parade watchers to enjoy viewing the windows. Participating merchants will enter the decorating contest. A panel of judges will judge those windows on December 15. Winners will be announced on the morning show on WBEV on December 22. DBDI encourages the community to view the windows and to support those merchants by doing some of your Christmas shopping downtown.
