WESTPORT — The Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce is seeking store fronts and window painters for the annual townwide Halloween Window Painting Contest.
The event will be held on Saturday, Oct. 21. Children of all ages are invited to put their artistic skills to work on merchant store front windows to create the spookiest or best Halloween-themed painting.
There will be three age groups participating: elementary school, middle school and high school within the categories of Scariest Art Work, Best Halloween Theme and Most Original. Judging will take place over the following few days by members of the community. The nine winners will get a picture of themselves with their window submitted to the press and receive a $25 gift certificate to Saugatuck Sweets. Kids can paint independently or in teams.
The chamber is seeking both sides of this process, kids and windows, with the goal of surpassing last year's number of stores painted of 23. For more information and to register for the event visit westportwestonchamber.com/halloween.
