Downtown storefronts are getting in the spirit of the season and participating in the Downtown Winter Window Decorating Contest. They are transforming our city in to a winter wonderland filled with all the holly jolly decor they can muster. A secret panel of judges made up of members of our community will vote for first, second, and third place window displays, through December 15th. First Place will receive $300.00 in Downtown Dollars, Second Place will receive $200.00, and Third Place will receive $100.00. There is also a  People's Choice category where the winner will also receive $300.00 in Downtown Dollars, but that means Downtown Kalamazoo needs your help choosing the best display. Click here for a complete list of participating businesses, and find out how you can be a part of choosing the 2019 People's Choice Winner for the Downtown Winter Window Decorating Contest.
