Window Painting

A newer tradition to Hometown Christmas, window painting is a great way for you to show your holiday spirit.  Community members come together to paint wintery Christmas themes on the windows of participating downtown businesses.  This is a great way to get people in front of (and inside!) your storefront! We will provide the supplies and local volunteers will complete the designs and painting.

If you have a group who is interested in painting windows, please let us know the size of your group and the average age of your group members.

We supply the paint, you supply the creativity.
