PRIZES have been handed out to reward the most festive Christmas window displays in Huntingdon.
The Parsley Pot at 40 High Street, Huntingdon, was awarded first prize for its display, which features Christmas scenes with snowmen and Santa Claus.
Second place went to Coleman's of Market Hill, while Sports & Fashions, of 51 High Street, was third.
The winner of the best non-retail window, sponsored by Huntingdon Town Centre Partnership, was Alchemy Hair Design of 74-75 High Street.
Kondje Selim, owner of The Parsley Pot, said: "We are very pleased to win this award and I must pay tribute to the hard work of all the staff who worked so hard to put it together.
"We put up a display for every occasion and we take great pride in our windows, plus there is the added bonus for us that everything in the window can be bought inside."
