There’s No Place Like SLO, especially during the holidays! The beautifully lit trees that line Higuera Street twinkle all year but during the holidays, it adds to the festive feel in our neighborhood. As do the whimsical storefront window displays throughout Downtown. Each year, the San Luis Obispo Downtown Association Design Committee hosts a Downtown Window Decorating Contest where more than two-dozen Downtown businesses (see map below) compete and design unique, creative window displays for their customers.
This year’s Downtown Holiday Parade theme “There’s No Place Like SLO” will prove overwhelmingly evident throughout Downtown when you see the warm and inviting displays in many of the storefronts. It’s one of the many perks of living in a smaller town and being a part of these events that bring the community together. So this year as you stroll through the streets of our neighborhood– look twice, make note and click here to vote for your favorite decorated storefront window in our online survey between Friday, November 27th and Monday, November 30th and choose which business will earn the coveted title of the People’s Choice Award.
Then, later that evening the Downtown Association Design Committee will judge the participating windows to select
First, Second and Third Place winners along with a winner for Best in Theme.
Be sure to participate in this annual tradition and experience Downtown’s charm during the holidays!
