St. Patrick’s Day Parade – Window Display Competition
On behalf of the Greystones Municipal District, we are again organising a Window Display Competition this year in conjunction with the St. Patrick’s Day Parade and it is hoped that all traders in the town will participate and decorate their shop windows for our national day.
There is no fee or entry form required for the competition. Traders who decorate their windows will be automatically included in the competition and an independent body of people will judge the windows. Your participation will lend a festive air to the town and give visitors an opportunity to stop and admire. The Window Display Competition always generates good publicity for those who take part.
The results of the competition will be announced when the winners of the various categories in the parade are published. We look forward to your participation in the competition and wish you every success.
