The Party Shop, in downtown Huntington, has earned first place in the retail division of the 12th annual Heritage Days Window Display Contest.

The Party Shop window, designed by employee Abby Hoffman, reflects this year's Heritage Days theme, "Steamin' into Huntington."

The window features a hand-painted engine pul-ling box car crates that are filled with products brought into Huntington and used by The Party Shop for its drinks and confections.

The Party Shop will have its name engraved on a traveling plaque, which will be displayed in the shop until next summer's Heritage Days.
The shop also receives a $50 Huntington County Chamber gift check courtesy of PACE Chevrolet and Renz Floor Care.

Second place in the retail division went to Smith Furniture, also in downtown Huntington.

The contest was organized by the Huntington County Visitor and Convention Bureau.
