Charles City ‘WonderFall’ business decorating contest to spice-up storefronts in October

The annual Charles City ‘WonderFall’ business decorating contest is quickly approaching in October. This free competition is designed to have some fun with the season, provide a community attraction and encourage businesses to change up their curb appeal a bit in order to get noticed and remind the public that they’re there.

There is no cost to participate in the WonderFall contest. Businesses wishing to take part simply need to come up with a fall or Halloween-theme decorative look and then let the Community Revitalization office know by 5 p.m. on October 4th. Submit a photo of the decoration (or ask Community Revitalization to take one), along with the business name, address, what your business does and how long you have been in business. 

Wicks says this will help businesses be recognized.

The contest will run from October 8th through October 29th, and the winner announced on Halloween (Oct. 30th). The winning business will receive a WonderFall Champion window cling and bragging rights for the next year.
