The counsellor presented both establishments with the prizes and thanked them for “the high level of their shop windows, with original designs, and congratulated them for the festive, original and ingenious decorations”.

The Councillor also commented on the creative and “aesthetic quality of the displays”, and the atmosphere related to the festival of “Les Fogueres de Sant Joan”, which has been recognised when deciding on the winners.

The first prize winners Monica and Marisa Jimenez and Miguel Angel Gomez were extremely pleased to receive their award. They are going to invest the money in the Floristería Orquídea Haus shop. They went for a stunningly original design and their win was well deserved.


Patricia Palau, the manager of Merceria Tere was also grateful for her award. “It has fallen from the sky, and we are going to invest it in making an arrangement on the floor of the haberdashery”, said Palau.

Other businesses were awarded with a 1000 euro prize too.
