The winners for the DWLBIA Business Window Decorating Contest are in.

The winners for the Downtown Williams Lake Business Improvement Association Business Window Decorating Contest are in.

The contest was created by the DWLBIA as a means to decorate the lakecity’s downtown core for the Winter Lights festivities and to create some excitement surrounding the upcoming Rogers Hometown Hockey the first weekend in January.

Two categories — Hockey and Winter Sports Through the Ages and Paint the Town Red — were judged by two local volunteers earlier this month.

In the Hockey And Winter Sports Through the Ages category first place went to 3Gen Cabinetry and Construction for its hockey-themed display, while runner up was awarded to Finn and Ark.

Mulberry Lane and owner Sharon Anderson picked up the nod for its festive holiday display in the Paint the Town Red category, with Lo’s Florist named as the runner up.

Participating businesses have been asked by the DWLBIA to keep their displays up until Rogers Hometown Hockey. The Tribune is also sponsoring a People’s Choice vote, partnering with the Williams Lake Chamber of Commerce and the City of Williams Lake as excitement mounts for the event.

The community is invited to view and vote for its favourite display in any participating store, which include: All-Ways Travel, Ciprani’s, Brides and Belles, Walk-Rite Shoes, Open Book, Bloom N Gifts, Mulberry Lane, Cariboo Chilcotin Métis Society, Do-More Promotional, Exploring the Puddle Daycare, Delainey’s Lock and Key, Lo’s Florist, Ibea’s Quilt Shop, Cash-Co (non-competitive), Mr. Mikes (non-competitive), The Pink Room, Eco-tique in Delainey’s Mall, Sutton Cariboo Realty, Raymond James, Four Winds Driving School, Finn and Ark, 3Gen Cabinetry and Construction and the Cariboo Mental Health Association.

The winner will receive an $850-valued, full-page advertisement in the Williams Lake Tribune. Votes will be collected at participating stores until Jan. 4, 2018.

Runners-up will receive a staff pack of drop-in fitness passes to the Cariboo Memorial Complex. The Chamber is also running a trivia contest through their Facebook page at go to www.williamslakechamber.com or www.tourismwilliamslake.com.
