Christmas is coming!
This Season there’s even more reason to do Downtown. 
Students from Kendall College of Art and Design and Grand Valley State University have partnered with Downtown merchants to compete in Window Wonderland 2013 – a competition to create the best holiday windows in Downtown Grand Rapids.
In true Grand Rapids fashion, you can vote for your favorite window designs and help the top student groups win up to $1000. Starting on November 22, with the unveiling of Downtown Decorations and extended holiday hours, place your vote inside participating businesses for their designs. Another reason to come down, a voter will be selected as the winner of a prize package from the merchants.
