Halloween Window Painting Artists: Take A Bow!

It’s a record!

On Saturday., 131 children painted 65 windows throughout town, for the Westport Weston Chamber of Commerce’s annual Halloween Window Painting Contest.

They looked great — for 3 days. Then the nor’easter washed most of the artwork away. Only a few remain.

Luckily, judging was done last weekend. Winners receive a certificate, and $25 gift card to Cold Fusion.

Who won? Scroll down to see.
