CLEAR FORK VALLEY — Groups in the valley are getting ready for this holiday season with a variety of events.
Businesses in the area are invited to participate in the Christmas window painting event.
One window at the Haven Salon and Spa is painted brightly with white lettering saying “Tis the season to sparkle!”
The window painting contest is sponsored by the Clear Fork Chamber of Commerce. Mayor Teri Brenkus said nearly 30 businesses have signed up to be in the contest.
