Downtown Gresham has been transformed into Halloweentown as business owners have joined in a fun decorating contest for Halloween weekend.
The first-ever Storefront Decorating Contest promotes the spooky-good spirit as many of the businesses have put up haunted window displays, created funny tableaus, and invited all the ghouls and goblins to visit Gresham.
There are several categories for winners — community choice, best representation of the business, scariest, most humorous, and mayor's choice. Community members are invited to visit downtown, shop, and check out all the innovative decorating and creative ideas. Judging will take place Wednesday evening, Oct. 27, and winners will be announced Saturday, Oct. 30 — the same day as the Safe Trick-or-Treat is held from 4-6 p.m. in downtown along Main Avenue between First and Fourth streets.
