The Asheville Downtown Association recently announced the winners of its annual Downtown Holiday Windows Contest.
Judges scored on creativity, originality, interpretation of theme, use of merchandise and the WOW factor. The 2019 theme is “Peace on Earth,” following the theme of the Asheville Holiday Parade.
“Hip Replacements’ Home Alone themed window impressed the judges with its creative spin on the theme ‘Peace on Earth’,” said Meghan Rogers, Executive Director of the Asheville Downtown Association. “Purl’s Yarn Emporium and Sensibilities Day Spa are always at the top of the judge’s list, and we were exited to award newcomers to the competition – Cultivated Cocktails and Moogseum.”
