TROY — Downtown Troy is busy preparing for the 2015 holiday season.

Troy Main Street has issued a challenge to the downtown merchants to fill the square with even more holiday cheer this year. The businesses have been tasked with decorating their store fronts and windows in the theme of their favorite holiday movie.

The Downtown Troy Holiday Merchants Open House will kick off the contest on Friday, Nov. 13. The residents of Troy and visitors to town are being asked to visit the participating stores and then vote for their favorite store window. Voting can be done through an online survey, found by following the link:

The winner of the holiday window display contest will be announced by Clint Myers and Lori Younce of Troy Community Radio at 5:30 p.m. the night of the Grand Illumination, which is slated for Friday, Nov. 27th. Polls will stay open until 5:25 p.m. Nov. 27 for all to cast their votes.
