Christmas Window Display contest

Crickets are part of the scene on this South Main Street storefront.

MOUNT VERNON – It’s time to break out all the Christmas classic cinema and the new Noel names to assist in inspiring your own “Christmas in the Movies” themed window display for Main Street Mount Vernon’s annual holiday window display contest.

Downtown businesses can deck out their “Christmas in the Movies” or Christmas themed window displays for a chance to win Most Creative, Best in Theme, or Judge’s Choice by members of the Food For The Hungry board. Prizes are to be determined.

Window displays should be completed no later than Dec. 3 to be eligible to win as the judging will take place the week before (Dec. 2 to 5) the Mount Vernon Christmas Festival (Dec. 6 to 8). Please note that while the contest is referred to as a window display contest those without window displays who decorate their storefronts are also eligible for the contest.

To participate or for more information contact Main Street Mount Vernon executive director Carrie Hyman at or 740-393-1481.

The mission of Main Street Mount Vernon is to energize and strengthen an authentic and uniquely local downtown experience.
