One of the most enjoyable traditions during the holiday season is seeing the results of amazing and creative holiday decorating done by local retailers and businesses, not to mention the town and the local business organizations.

There are some spectacular windows in West Hartford Center and Blue Back Square that you need to go see for yourselves – we feel the best time is just as the sun is setting.

Favorites for 2017 were collected in a survey conducted on We-Ha.com, and by a panel of strolling judges coordinated by Shari Phillips, owner at Matthew Phillips Aveda Concept Salon, along with input from celebrity judges Darren Sweeney of NBC Connecticut and Suzy Klonk from 102.9 The Whale.

The judges announced their choices from the Showmobile stage during the Holiday Stroll on Friday, Dec. 1. The community had the full weekend to cast their votes.

Here are the results and a few photos!
