The Downtown Racine Corporation (DRC) is holding a Christmas decoration competition for participating businesses in the downtown area and they need your votes. The competition will be held from now until Dec. 17. Merchants will use lights, ornaments, and decorations of all kinds to adorn their windows and walls for this exciting competition.

The winner will be chosen based on a combination of in-person ballot votes and Facebook likes.

You can submit your ballot vote at your favorite business. To submit your favorite window preference online, like its corresponding photo on the DRC Facebook page under the “Holiday Window Decorating Competition photo album.” The reward for winning the window decorating competition is bragging rights on social media, as well as free advertising in the 2019-2020 Visitor Guide publication, which highlights events, businesses, and restaurants in Racine.
