Adding a festive flair to Carlsbad Village, 26 downtown businesses decorated their display windows with everything from Dickensian Village scenes to talking Artic Puffins to Christmas past. Some windows were gloriously painted and others had full window displays for everyone to enjoy. Besides adding holiday cheer to our Village, they were also vying for advertising prizes donated by the Coast News newspaper and Carlsbad Magazine. Judges who walked the Village to view all participant displays were the Executive Director of Visit Carlsbad, Sam Ross, as well as a group of young holiday enthusiasts from the Carlsbad Boys and Girls Club led by Clubhouse Director, Abby Snyder. The public who voted on-line in the People’s Choice award came out in force and cast over 600 votes! The winners are listed below:
Winter Spirit: Viz Art Ink Gallery – 2906 State St.
Kid’s Favorite: Carlsbad Village Music – 505 Carlsbad Village Dr.
People’s Choice: Jayden Presleigh Salon Salon & Spa – 2946 State St.
Thank you to all the wonderful Carlsbad Village businesses and dedicated judges for making our Village special and fun this holiday season!
