Many of the merchants in Capitola Village are participating in the 5th Annual Window Decorating Contest this Holiday Season! Come down to Capitola Village and as you stroll through the shops and dine at your favorite restaurants, make sure to pick up a ballot at any of the participating business to vote for your favorite decorated window! The contest will run from December 1st to December 15th.  By entering your 2 favorite decorated windows, your name is being entered to win a bundle of gift certificates to some of Capitola Villages shops and restaurants!
