We also turn the gavel over to the people of Burlington to vote for their favourite and help decide winner for the final category:

We are asking the public to submit photos they’ve taken of your display. A special “PEOPLE’S CHOICE” AWARD will be granted at our ceremony on Tuesday December 12th. Scroll down for a full list of participating businesses OR look for the Christmas Windows of Downtown participant posters!
