The 2020 holiday season (to date!) has been merry and bright with Santa ZOOM-ing in from the North Pole, holiday movies, and mulled wine and gingerbread delights! We held our 1st Annual Decorated Storefront Contest with 20 of our favorite #shopsmall stores participating in the festive fun! With votes texted in over a 2-week period, the 3 winners were announced on Sunday, December 13th, 2020:
1st Place: Congratulations to the Calistoga Wine Stop for receiving top honors! Their storefront, decorated with silver and blue packages and a menorah delighted and inspired. Perhaps if you stop in to purchase that special bottle to accompany your holiday meal, you can convince owners Tara and Tammy to wrap it up as beautifully as their windows and teach you how to tie those perfect bows.
2nd Place: Yager Galerie came in 2nd with their understated and elegant windows. This regional contemporary art gallery and exhibition space located on Lincoln Avenue, incorporated nature into their windows , with wreaths filled with oranges and white candles and holly on display at the entry.
3rd Place: Always keeping us in shape, Fitness First won 3rd place with their bright and fun window display in their new location on Lincoln Avenue. Lighted Christmas trees, colored lights and Santa’s hat created a small winter wonderland in downtown Calistoga.
Visit Calistoga wants to thank all of the participating stores and all of YOU who voted! Make sure on your next holiday stroll through downtown Calistoga, you take a few minutes to admire the decorated windows. Perhaps they’ll even inspire you to bring a little bit of it home with you. Happy Holidays!
