The Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce (WWCC) today announced the winners of this year’s annual Halloween Window Painting Contest held Saturday.

About 100 children, the highest participation to date, painted 55 commercial windows for the contest, the announcement said.

“We are so pleased to have pulled this off, in spite of the pandemic,” said Matthew Mandell, WWCC executive director. “The effort was truly worthwhile, and we thank every merchant who offered a window, to ensure every child entered had a canvas to paint.”

This year’s judges were Ruth Mannes, MoCA of Westport executive director and Anne Greenberg, MoCA’s education director.
