Businesses use their front windows to display their name and specials, but they can now use the window to show patriotism.

The Celebration of America Committee is planning a gala Fourth of July celebration in downtown Morgantown.

To kick off the event they are holding the 16th annual patriotic window decorating contest.

Downtown merchants can paint a mural of what the Fourth of July means to their business.

They'll be judged on theme, presentation and artistic composition.

First, second and third prizes of $100, $50 and $25 will be awarded.

Deadline for entry is June 20.
