Main Street Mount Vernon announces holiday window display contest


MOUNT VERNON — It’s nearly time to pull your nutcrackers and toy snare drums out of storage to create your own “March of the Toys” themed window display for Main Street Mount Vernon’s annual holiday window display contest.

Downtown businesses can deck out their “March of the Toys” 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 committee.

Winners will be announced during the Mount Vernon Christmas Walk/Parade on Sunday, Nov. 25, and will also be listed on Main Street Mount Vernon’s Facebook page.

Window displays should be completed no later than Nov. 19 to be eligible to win as the judging will occur that week. 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 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.
