Downtown Helena’s annual Deck the Halls holiday decorating contest is happening again this year!

Downtown local businesses are asked to decorate their storefronts this holiday season, with full decorations up by Friday, December 4th. Voting will then commence starting December 7-13 with the winner announced on Tuesday, December 15. The top three businesses as voted by Helena will receive free DHI memberships for 2021 at the following levels:

  • First Place: Community Champions (Premium Level) worth $750
  • Second Place: Helena Heroes (Advanced Level) worth $500
  • Third Place: Downtown Defenders (Standard) worth $300

Better yet, to put our money where our mouth is, DHI is providing $2,000 to help downtown businesses decorate their storefronts with new decorations (i.e. lights, banners). UPDATE: All of the donated money has now been reserved. Thanks to all of the businesses who took advantage of this great opportunity.

Sign up below so that we can include your business in the final voting. If you have more than one photo that you want to be used on social media, please email it directly to Mike at [email protected]
