From a press release:

Sparked with creativity and plenty of holiday cheer, downtown Scranton business and property owners are preparing for the annual Holiday Window Decorating Showcase, on display this Friday, Dec. 6 for the First Friday art walk through Friday, Jan. 3, 2020. More than 50 storefronts will be featured in this year’s competition.

A secret panel of judges will award prizes in the following categories, many of which are new to this year’s contest: Unique; Traditional/Old-Fashioned; Most Retro; Most Whimsical; Most Festive; Best Use of Greens; Best Use of Recycled Materials; Most Childlike; Most Innovative; Most Glamorous/Bling; Best Use of Lights; Most Modern; Best Display of the Spirit of Christmas; Winter Wonderland; and Most Scrantastic.

The Holiday Window Decorating Showcase is part of Scranton Tomorrow’s Deck the Downtown holiday campaign, encouraging everyone in the community to eat, shop, and celebrate in downtown Scranton this holiday season. In addition to festive window displays, many businesses are offering extended holiday hours to enhance the downtown shopping experience. Seasonal pop-up shops now fill unoccupied spaces throughout the business district, providing even more opportunities for holiday shopping.

Seasonal fun continues with the 25 Days of Downtown (Dec. 1-25), featuring a new business and special promotions each day leading up to Christmas. Follow along with Scranton Tomorrow’s countdown to Christmas by searching for the hashtag #25DaysofDowntown on social media.
