Downtown Venice is aglow and full of holiday cheer thanks to the hard work and creativity of many of the shops and restaurants that decorated for this holiday season. Each year Venice MainStreet holds a Holiday Window Decorating Contest and invites its downtown Business Partners to participate. Venice MainStreet staff and its Design Committee voted for winners in six different categories. Visit downtown Venice this month and decide which windows are your favorites!
