Trim Our Town: Highlands NC
Issue: 2020/12 - December
Those kaleidoscopic Holiday Windows scattered around Highlands are part of the Trim Our Town contest. Your judgment is requested.
If you think about it, Highlands is made for a Winter Wonderland postcard.
There’s the Highlands Ice Rink at Kelsey-Hutchinson Founders Park, looking like a 21st century version of a Currier & Ives print.
You can’t help but be beguiled by the trees adorned with lights and the decorated lamp posts scattered across downtown like a window display in a Brobdingnagian Tiffany’s.
Which brings us to the actual window displays of shops and galleries around town.
The Highlands Chamber of Commerce is once more staging its Trim the Town Competition, which it began in 1989.
Since Highlands’ collection of businesses is one-of-a-kind, like no other small town in the Southeast, that means that these displays are astonishing in their variety and their creativity.
Everyone is invited to judge these windows (just look for the Trim Our Town Poster in their window) and choose their favorite.
The chamber will tally the selections and announce the winner on Christmas Day. And in the true spirit of the season, the chamber will award a lucky judge a prize for their choice and their voice.
