CANDY-THREE

This edible Christmas tree uses a spiderman body as its base inside because it has flexible limbs to allow for candy distribution. This was part of a 2004 candy window.

6 ‘sweetly’ decorated windows grace downtown Provo at Christmas

Kathryn Allen, director of the Provo Arts Council, had an annual tradition of taking her children to ZCMI in Salt Lake City to see their magical candy windows.

“When they stopped doing the windows, I knew immediately that we had to create candy windows and bring people to Provo to see them,” Kathryn says.

Her vision of sugarplums (and other sweets) came true in 2001 and every Christmas since then, as volunteers create theme-based displays with thousands of dollars of candy.

This year’s theme? Children’s Christmas books.

The Provo Arts Council gives each volunteer a budget for candy to design their edible window display based on a theme. Prizes are awarded to the best windows each year.
