The 10th Annual Window Decorating Contest in downtown Faribault took place on Thursday, December 1.
There were 27 businesses throughout the historic district participating, plus attendees had the chance to meet Santa and step back in time with a horse drawn wagon ride. It was a beautiful evening to stroll the streets of downtown Faribault, look at the creativity and thought placed into the annual window decorating contest, and vote for your favorites. This year’s official theme was “Wrapped in Glory” to tie into the production at the Paradise Center for the Arts, and there was also an overall category to include storefronts that had a different decorating theme in mind.
This year’s winners are Studio 14 Salon and Spa winning the themed vote, and Heartman Insurance winning the overall vote. Keepers Antiques and Boxers were also crowd favorites coming in very close behind.
Thank you to all who came out to enjoy everything downtown has to offer, stroll the storefronts, vote and maybe even catch a horse drawn sleigh ride. And thank you to all of the businesses for putting together great window displays.
