Hey Westport! It’s time again to get into the Halloween spirit and come dress up town windows with your best ghostly works of art. On Sunday, October 20th from 11am-4pm artists, families, schools, clubs and small groups of 2 or 3, are encouraged to sign-up to paint our town’s shop windows with spooky family-friendly Halloween scenes.

Windows will be assigned on a first come first serve basis by the Chamber of Commerce office. Each artist or group supplies his or her own tempera paints (not acrylics), brushes, drop cloths, paper towels and ladder if needed. The windows will be marked in advance and artists are asked to paint within the officially marked space and to clean up their areas when completed.
Judging by local town leaders, and artists will take place beginning at 4:00 pm with ribbons awarded and placed on the winning windows. Prizes will be awarded in three categories: Grades 3-5, Grades 6-8 and Grades 9-12.
