They have been doing it for a number of years and on a few occasions there have been some stunning window displays to add to the mood, tone and feel of the downtown streets during the festive season.

This year – there were a couple of clunkers – what were they thinking?

No need to call them out – fortunately for the judges, as esteemed as they were, their names were not published.

The Burlington Downtown Business Association announced the 2018 winning displays:

The winners and the Honourable mentions.

The response to the opportunity to decorate the store fronts along Brant and John street and some of the adjacent streets has been a bit sporadic. Some of the commercial establishments, especially those in hospitality have been really limp – a string of lights was it at some locations. Not all of them but enough to make the lack of participation evident.

With well decorated store fronts and innovative, creative ideas people want to get out on the streets – and if they are on the streets they can walk in.

Let’s see what they can do in 2020.
