The holidays are here, and Salem is dressing up for the season with trees, wreaths, and ribbons. As part of the festive fun, downtown businesses decorate their windows especially for the holidays. Judges nominated by Salem Main Streets will make the rounds to vote on the best windows. Award categories typically highlight good retail design – use of store products or display of a business’ services – or types of design, like most traditional.
Windows will begin to be decorated and ready for judging by Dec. 7th. Winners will be announced by Dec. 14th. This year’s participating businesses currently include:
