The public cast ballots after viewing the displays of the finalists in two storefronts on New York Avenue the day of the parade and festival to decide the winners. 

The winners will be announced at the annual tree lighting that follows the parade.

The winning commercial bakery will receive a VIP box for seven for a concert at the Paramount Theater. The home baker winner will win a new KitchenAid Artisan Mixer.

After the parade and festival, the finalist entries will be moved to Town Hall, where they will be put on display through January
