Holiday Window Display Contest

Ready to be dazzled? This holiday season, businesses all over downtown Portland will decorate their windows with spectacular, eye-popping displays for all to enjoy. The gorgeous creations will delight thousands of residents and visitors who can vote for their favorite beginning Dec 6 on our Facebook page. The photo/business with the most “likes” by noon on Monday, Dec. 19th will be declared our “Community Choice.”
