SECOND PLACE: SAINT TROPEZ BISTRO & BEYOND

New to the community, Saint Tropez Bistro & Beyond in Downtown Oceanside took second place. Judge Dick Bartlett said, “The lighting made this location attractive to those driving or walking by Saint Tropez Bistro and Beyond, and they also have great pastries to enjoy with the festive decorations.”

THIRD PLACE: STAGE AND SCREEN FX

Last year’s 'Tis the Season Window Decorating Contest winner, Stage and Screen FX, took third place this year. Judge CJ DiMento said of the Downtown Oceanside display, “Stage and Screen FX had a very nice decorative storefront with blow-up characters above their sign and candy cane-wrapped poles! The storefront decoration complements their makeup products and fun gifts for your family!”
