Burgaw window decorations

North Carolina’s Blueberry Festival is still two weeks away, but there’s already a blue tint in Burgaw.

Some businesses are competing for the best blueberry window design.

Wednesday, three judges including WWAY’s Joe Mauceri ranked 12 local businesses on their blueberry pride.

The displays were judged on their blueberry theme, creativity, and overall visual appeal, but organizers say the decorations do more than just show community spirit.

“When tourists are here during the Blueberry Festival, they want to see anything blueberry. So, it really generates traffic into the business as well. When you go around to some of these businesses it’s unbelievable what some of them do,” said Dopnna Best-Klingel of the Burgaw Chamber of Commerce.

Decorations included everything from clothing to full window paintings.

The winners of the competition will be announced at the Courthouse Square on June 19th, the day before the festival.
