Carlsbad Village Holiday Window Display Winners Announced 2017

2017 Carlsbad Village Holiday Window Display Winners


The Carlsbad Village Association (see photo above from their website) sponsored a contest for merchants in the Village to decorate their windows for the holidays in 2017, with voting from December 2 through the 18th for the People’s Choice winner; there were a total of 1338 votes cast by Carlsbad residents.


Two other winners were selected: one by 2 City Council Members (Cory Schumacher and Keith Blackburn), and the second by the Boys and Girls Club of Carlsbad. You can read more about the contest here.


24 businesses participated, and 3 winners were announced yesterday, and it was fun to stop by each of the windows to grab my own photo!! Thanks to our Carlsbad Village businesses for making our town so festive!!

Hi Silvia Dukes PA, Broker Associate, CRS, CIPS, SRES 

They did this last year for the first time and it was a huge success. Such fun to see all the windows decorated, although I suspect many businesses would do so anyway, even without the contest.

Hi Brad Thomsen  - defintely a holiday mood going on here. And the weather has been wonderful, but it should be for this time of year.

I do too George Souto  - such fun to see around town. I think it helps build a sense of community among the businesses, and residents and visitors enjoy it.

So good to see that they are continuing this annual event, Jeff! What a great way to build business for these folks and involve the community in a fun way. I love the toys and the old sled - very cool displays!

Hi Sheri Sperry - MCNE®  - tinker toys were great. I remember having lots of fun with them. Olde Ivy Antiques was very cool - I talked to the owner for a minute (and of course asked about taking a photo to share!!).

Hi Debe Maxwell, CRS 

There were lots of beautiful windows and no doubt the choice was hard. I love what the Carlsbad Village Association is doing for our town and how businesses are responding to the various event throughout the year.
