A holiday window at Gum Tree from a previous year (because we don't want to favor any one window from this year while the contest is going on).

'Tis the season to enjoy beautifully decorated holiday storefronts in downtown Manhattan Beach. And as you walk around, here are two bonus activities: You can vote on your favorite window AND participate in a scavenger hunt.
