    On October 13th, we invite you to paint windows donated by our generous business community with Fall and Halloween themes. Paint one window by yourself or paint one as a team (3 persons). Register by October 5 before 4:30 p.m. Registrations received after October 5 will be placed on a “waiting list” and given windows as they are available. (Please let us know at the time of registration if you and your team are willing to wash your window after Halloween. Some merchants appreciate this greatly.) Windows are assigned by lottery and group size. Please understand that there are more participating businesses than just those on the two main streets of town, so let’s beautify ALL the windows with Halloween art this year!
