UPDATE, Dec. 30: voting has closed, thank you for participating.

The annual Whimsical Windows decorating contest put on by the Downtown Dayton Partnership has begun! This year 25 local businesses decorated the windows of their downtown storefronts in the hope your vote will win them a cash prize -- the business with the most votes in our online poll below wins. Voting is live through noon on Dec. 30. Vote now!

This year, some of the businesses chose to have their windows decorated by Modern College of Design students. This partnership was a new feature of the annual display contest.

Pictures might say a thousand words, but it’s a million times better when you see them in person! Don’t miss the Whimsical Windows while they’re on display. Stop by while you’re downtown shopping, dining, picking up a takeout order, or just for an outdoor adventure while you’re also enjoying other holiday attractions in downtown Dayton, such as the Holiday Lights on Main dancing light display. There are still some holiday activities happening in December as part of the Dayton Holiday Festival, presented by DP&L. You can find more information at www.downtowndayton.org.
