This is the fourth year for the contest with many local businesses taking part in decorating their business to honor and celebrate the upcoming Carnation Festival. Last year's winner was Robertson Heating Supply, for their wonderful display of our Carnation City.

At the time of registration, you will be given a contest kit and information on what is needed to be considered for judging. The displays will be judged on ingenuity, originality and overall use of carnations.

Winners will be announced at Days in the Park, on the festival website and on Facebook approximately 3 days before the Grand Parade. The winner of the display contest will be the Greater Alliance Carnation Festival Grand Parade ceremonial starter, will ride in the parade and receive a plaque & city bragging rights.
