Shops on Show

Shops On Show Logo.png

Shops on Show was a huge success last year and is returning 1-15 December.

Shop local and vote for your favourite Christmas shop window by visiting registered shops and vote by ‘liking’ the window photo via Council’s Facebook and Instagram pages.

The three shops with the most 'likes' on their Christmas window photos will win.

Shoppers who vote online for their favourite Christmas window will also go into the draw for prizes in over $7,000 in value.

Get involved! Don’t miss your opportunity to win some great prizes and support local businesses.

Supported by Maribyrnong & Hobsons Bay Star Weekly.

Register your business Christmas window:

Registrations now closed.

To vote via Facebook and Instagram

The public will be able to vote for their favourite shop window image by two ways:

  1. “like” the photo in the dedicated Shops on Show photo album on Hobsons Bay City Council’s Facebook.
  2. “like” the individual shop Instagram post on Council’s Instagram. The posts will go up randomly over the next 2 weeks. Businesses will be tagged if you want to look for the posts online.

On 15 December all the “likes” will be added up from both Facebook and Instagram and the most "likes" will determine the winner.

Winners will be printed in the Maribyrnong & Hobsons Bay Star Weekly and on named Council’s Facebook, Instagram and website on Wednesday 18 December.
