Shops on Show


Shops on Show was a huge success last year and returned 1-15 December.

The community was encouraged to shop local and vote for their favourite Christmas shop window by visiting registered shops and vote by ‘liking’ the window photo via Council’s Facebook and Instagram pages.

The three shops with the most 'likes' on their Christmas window photos won.

Shoppers who voted online for their favourite Christmas window will also went into the draw for prizes in over $7,000 in value.

Shop winners have been printed in the Maribyrnong & Hobsons Bay Star Weekly and on named Council’s Facebook, Instagram and website on Wednesday 18 December.
