Merrickville-Wolford in Bloom held the first annual Best Decorated Business competition on December 1, during the Christmas in Merrickville celebration. First place went to Nana B’s bakery, which was all dressed up like a life-size gingerbread house. Second place went to Diluca Italian restaurant, where the restaurant was decorated like a festive winter chalet. Not surprisingly, the Merry Christmas Shoppe came in third, with their ornate window displays of toys and decorations.
Merrickville-Wolford-in-Bloom Chair and judge, Chris Scullino, had a lot of fun walking around the Village and taking in all the Christmas decorations. He says many people stopped to tell them how beautiful the village looked. “It was like a winter wonderland,” he says.
