Deck Downtown

A new annual event that we promote in our community is Deck Downtown! This event takes place at the very beginning of December, where downtown stores can enter a window decorating contest to compete for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prizes.

Since downtown Newton is the heart of our community, we want to make it a destination – a special place to shop, eat and enjoy – during the holiday season. So, when we encourage downtown businesses to decorate their windows, it really helps brighten up main street and add a special holiday feel to our community. This event is open for all businesses – not just Chamber members!

The fun part is, the community gets to be the judge of which windows are best! Community members have the opportunity to go online and vote for their favorite window displays. Winners will be announced online and in the local newspapers following the close of voting. After the voting is ceased, we still encourage business owners to keep up their decorations through the Christmas holiday.

The winners of the 2021 Deck Downtown competition:
1st place: Berkshire Hathaway Home Services
2nd place: Vogts Parga
3rd place: Bella Veil Bridal Boutique

Excited to see what the 2022 Deck Downtown competition will have in store!
