A window of creativity: The Spoleto window competition

The annual Spoleto Festival is nearly here, and we're getting excited over here at TheDigitel.com. -- So, of course we agreed to come along when the folks over at Spoleto asked us along on their annual window-judging event.

Read more stories on this subject in our Spoleto special section. Here's the basic idea: Dozens of local shops agree to spice up their window displays with a Spoleto theme -- often including the much beloved yearly poster. And then, on May 15, they were all voted on by a panel of judges.

This year over 60 local shops decorated in hopes of being the best.

So, tune in to the video above for a look as the judges do their thing on all-too-warm Friday afternoon in Charleston.


Stay tuned for Monday, when the winners will be announced at Carolina's happy hour (5 to 8 p.m.) The restaurant is at 10 Exchange Street in downtown Charleston.
