OVER 75 venues have signed up to the Window Wanderland trail, which will see residents and traders dressing up their windows and gardens, in a bid to banish the winter blues.
Coined by local artist and mum Lucy Reeves, the free evening event - taking place on February 7 - aims to encourage residents to create magical displays, and also wrap up warm and explore the neighbourhood.
Lucy said: "We are getting a very positive response and have had many ideas from making a land of sweets in Kings Drive to hanging 1000 origami cranes in Burghley Road. Who knows what you’ll see.
"There's still time to sign up before the end of January, check out the map and help us join the dots to make a trail.”
To add to the fun, spectators on the trail will have the chance to vote for their favourite window.
The four categories include 'funniest display', 'most beautiful display', 'best street', and 'the room you’d most like to be in'.
Prizes have been donated by Gloucester Road businesses, such as a dinner for two at Boston Tea Party, or vouchers from Dave Giles the butcher.
Community groups and schools are also getting involved, including Friends of Horfield Common, who will be decorating the Ardagh, and Ashley Down School.
The trail runs from 5-8pm.
Maps will be available to collect from January 30 at Tart, Halo, Relax Coffee, Boston Tea Party and Tinto Lounge in Gloucester Road, or online at: windowwanderland.com.
Those taking part on the trail can get 10% off at Boston Tea Party from 5-8pm on night when you show your map.
To sign up to the trail, email: windowwanderland@gmail.com.
A meeting is also being held to find out more about the trail at Boston Tea Party in Gloucester Road on January 13 and 26, 6-8pm.
