Both activities are free and open to the public, with an entry deadline of Dec. 31. Winners of the Favorite Window Display and the Name That Song contests will be announced on Jan. 9. Prizes are gift certificates to Downtown Harlingen businesses.
In order to participate, Winter Texans should visit Downtown Harlingen between Dec. 1 and 31 to vote for their three favorite window displays. The 38 participating businesses also will display posters with lines from popular Christmas songs in their windows. Entrants must guess the names of the songs and write them on the contest entry form. At least 18 Christmas songs must be correctly identified in order to be eligible for the prize drawing. No purchase is necessary but only one entry per person is allowed.
Contest rules and entry forms are available at Downtown Harlingen businesses and on the website, www.downtownharlingen.com (click on “Events” for Holiday Contests information).
