CIRCLEVILLE, Ohio (Dimple Times) – Everyone you know has a favorite Christmas song – one that they look forward to listening to every year during the holidays (or if you’re like me… you’re blasting that special tune in July). This year, the Circleville DBA’s theme for the Light Up Historical Downtown Circleville contest was all about favorite Christmas songs – and there were some unique designs from the ten businesses that participated.
Here are the top 3 winners for this year’s theme.
3rd Place – Trans County Title, “I’ll be Home for Christmas”
A scenic backdrop with white snowflakes against a dark sky is what the passengers of the little red vehicle are graced with, as they make their way through the snowy landscape towards home. A little Christmas tree and some presents are strapped carefully to the top of the vehicle for a safe journey home for Christmas. This window display captivates the essence of the popular Christmas song. The display lights up the window with a great variety of lights, giving a beautiful, magical feel to the display.
2nd Place – Moonstone Circle, “Silent Night”
We can all agree – “Silent Night” is one of those songs that gives one a sense of calm and peace. Moonstone Circle captured that with their window display, which was painted by an artist in such a way that it gives the impression of a 3D image popping out at you. Lighting up the night sky of the tranquil snowy scene is a large star for all to see.
1st Place – Uniquely Yours, “Mr. Grinch”
Stink, stank, stunk… this does NOT describe the gorgeous window display that took the 1st prize ribbon this year. Uniquely Yours brought to life Whoville with a snowy, twinkling little town bustling with life – all waiting to be stolen away by the big mean green perched up in the festive pink Christmas tree. With light-up businesses and houses, moving figures, and a lot of glistening lights… this display held a grand amount of creativity, lights, and brought Whoville to Circleville.
Which window display was your favorite? There are more businesses throughout the city of Circleville and the entirety of Circleville that have decorated for Christmas – be sure to check them out if you’re out and about and support local while you’re at it.
