The Holiday Spirit is in the air downtown...

Downtown Harrisburg is getting in the holiday spirit. As part of an effort to promote shopping local and shopping small, the Harrisburg Downtown Improvement District has created a Window Wonderland contest within the business district. Businesses have decorated their store fronts and windows with holiday displays vying to be the best and win first prize.

Now through mid – December, visitors to downtown will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite window displays. Visitors can stop by the Visitors Information Center/Downtown Improvement District to cast their vote for their favorite window display or vote on our Facebook page (beginning November 30). Not only do the businesses have a chance to win a prize for their displays, voters will be entered to win a gift card to one of downtown’s dining establishments.

“We are eager for people to come downtown for the holidays, explore the shops and restaurants and check out the phenomenal window displays. We have a great group of business owners who work hard day in and day out creating a thriving downtown,” said Leigh Ann M. Urban, Director of Marketing and creator of Window Wonderland, “and we hope the community will shop small this holiday season and support our local business community.”
