Merchant Window Display

You…have been a special part of Carpinteria’s growth….

Help us kick start the 50th anniversary of Carpinteria becoming its OWN city….


Simply decorate your storefront window incorporating one of the themes below.

  • A throwback to an old Carpinteria tradition
  • An influence from 1965: movies, fashion, icons, music, historical events ect.
  • A celebration of Carpinteria Spirit

The craftier your display, the more advertisement for your store and the more people get talking!


Storefront displays need to be completed by December 12, 2014, so local residents attending the Holiday Spirit parade can vote on the display that best embodies one of the above themes.

You may be asking… Why?

Community involvement is quintessential to our town! Participating merchants will be advertised on the Holiday Spirit Parade website, Facebook page and receive parade day shout outs.

And did we mention…

Display winners will be acknowledged in the Coastal View!
