Numerous restaurants and shops throughout downtown Portland dressed up their windows for the holiday season with great window displays. Portland’s Downtown District has annually hosted a contest for the best window and has just announced this year’s winners:
First place winner is: Emerald City, at 611 Congress Street,
Second place winners are: Folia, 50 Exchange Street in the Old Port and Mensroom Salon & Lounge, 8 City Center.
The windows can be seen throughout the holiday season in the Old Port and Arts District. “There is nothing to get you into the holiday spirit like walking through downtown Portland’s fabulous shopping district. The windows this year have surpassed previous year’s in creativity!”, said Jan Beitzer, Executive Director of Portland’s Downtown District.
