Excitement is building in the Market Hall as the Mayor and Mayoress continue to judge the 'Best Dressed Window' competition.
Hyndburn Mayor, Councillor John Broadley and his wife Jean are taking a good luck at stalls that are celebrating the spirit of Christmas.
The Mayor told the Observer he had already seen some wonderful decorations to some of the stalls.
A spokesman for the Hyndburn Chamber of Trade said the idea of the competition is to encourage owners to make an attractive, innovative display which will entice people to stop and look at their windows and then go in to see what's on offer.
He added: "We do not expect business owners to go to a lot of expense but would like to see something attractive and unusual. After his visit the mayor will make his decision and then on Tuesday, December 18 he will present trophies and certificates to the the winners."
