Move over, Macy’s…winter magic lights the streets and storefronts of Nyack for all to enjoy! And what better way to add to the festivities than with a contest?
In November, Nyack Merchants United challenged local businesses to compete for honors – and prizes – for the best storefront displays, inviting decoration aficionados to vote for their favorites on a Facebook page dedicated to the Winter Wanderland Window Decorating Contest. Feel free to scroll through all the fun and festive entries!
The results are now in… and the winners are:
First Place Winner: Knitting Nation, 30 North Broadway
Jane Saffir (owner)
Runner-up: Hope Wade Designs/Honor & Blume Co-Op, 23 North Broadway
Mayor Don Hammond with Hope Wade (owner) and Hilarie Blumenthal (owner)
The contest was great fun – and a great way to support local shops. The winners get valuable prizes to help sustain them, including free advertising, promotional photography and membership in the Nyack Chamber of Commerce.
All are invited to view the winning storefronts, as well as the many boutiques, restaurants and service establishments offering seasonal delights in a welcoming – and safe – Winter Wanderland.
Continuing every weekend through February 28, Nyack’s Winter Wanderland includes sidewalk shopping, hearty food and hot drinks, festive decorations, the warmth of fire pits, and the joy of beautiful music – all with a backdrop of breathtaking views and access to the Hudson River.
Winter Wanderland is a continuation of Nyack’s Safe Haven activities that began last spring with street closures for outdoor shopping and dining. All are invited to wander!
Masks and social distancing are required.
