Holiday window competition underway

It’s time for Fernie businesses to start thinking about how to dress their shop windows for the Christmas season.

It’s time for Fernie businesses to start thinking about how to dress their shop windows for the Christmas season. The Fernie Chamber of Commerce’s Holiday Window Competition is coming up quickly and this year’s theme is snow globes.

A Chamber representative will visit all of the displays on the evening of December 7 for judging.

The first place prize this year is a $300 cash prize, as well as a half page ad in The Free Press. Second place will receive $150 and a quarter page ad, with third place receiving $120 and an eighth page ad.

All Fernie businesses are eligible, however storefronts located outside the downtown area need to let the Chamber know they are participating to make sure their window is visited on judging night. Business owners are not required to be present during judging.
