See the window decorating contest in Knoxville

The window decorating contest in Knoxville runs from November 21 - December 14, 2012. Participating businesses and restaurants throughout the downtown area are turning the City of Knoxville into a Christmas wonderland. Visitors have the chance to vote for their favorite window on the Facebook Page that is set up by the City of Knoxville Special Events.

The decorating contest gives people another reason to visit downtown.  Windows along Gay Street, Jackson Avenue, Central Avenue and other areas are ready for your visit.

Perusing the windows may make for the ideal holiday date. Stroll the streets, stop in and shop or get a bite to eat. Perhaps most importantly, bring your camera.

  1. It is hard for me to think this is all right around the corner!

  2. I know. The year is swooshing by all too fast. This is always a fun season though. I hope you have loads of good things planned.
