Each year, local teens (and younger) participate in a window painting contest with the palette's being the storefronts of local businesses.  Unfortunately, this ear I didn't get out while the kids were doing the painting, so there's no kids in the pics.  But I did manage to shoot pics of some of the windows themselves.
