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.

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.
