In addition to being able to vote on your favorite window display, you can get involved in exciting events happening in Downtown Racine like the Kris Kringle Tour on Dec. 10. Visit Downtown Racine any other day to experience the magic of the holiday season, locally.

“This is a fun way to bring back the nostalgic feeling of having a downtown filled with window displays, lights and decorations to get the entire family into the holiday spirit. While downtown, I encourage you take some time to shop and dine locally. With over 30 new businesses opening this year, you will find a gift for everyone on your list.”
