A wonderful holiday window display sits right along 5th Avenue in downtown Anchorage. It’s the brainchild of Sarah Smith and her brother. Sarah, who owns the Lexington Salon and Spa, wanted to create magic in a box to celebrate the holidays and possibly attract more people to downtown. So, she created a wonderful little recreation of the town of Girdwood, complete with a tram and the Alaskan Railroad and even northern lights! She has packed everything from an action skating rink to the tram which moves back and forth. She also had speakers put outside which play traditional Christmas music to complete the magical window moment. Sarah, a native of Alaska says she loves Anchorage and all it has to offer and would love to see more people coming downtown to shop and do business. And her window display? Is just one small way she’s trying to make that happen.
