Voting is underway to select the best decorated business in Berlin this holiday season.

“It is something were definitely excited about and hoping we get a lot of folks involved,” Economic Development Director Chris Edge said.

Residents can vote in the Light Up Berlin contest, launched by the Economic Development Commission, via an online survey through Wednesday, Dec. 25.

Prizes will be awarded to the top five businesses.

The grand prize winner will be selected by a panel composed of Mayor Mark Kaczynski, Planning & Zoning Commission Chairperson Joan Veley and Economic Development Commission Chairperson Dave Cyr.

“We are excited to have a competition that will allow our businesses to show both their Berlin and holiday spirit this year,” Kaczynski said in a press release from the town.

Edge said he hopes by encouraging residents to take a closer look at buildings around town, that they may discover new businesses to patronize.

“I am, for one, proud to have these awesome companies in Berlin. We now have the ability to showcase them for helping make our town shine,” Economic Development Commission member Chris Coppola said in the release.
