Fall decor gets competitive boost in Downtown Chipley

With fall in the air, Chipley Garden Club is looking to the community to decorate the town.

The club is sponsoring a Downtown Chipley Fall Decorating Contest that is open to both homes and businesses located inside the city limits.

The contest will run from Sept. 25 to Oct. 24, and there is no cost to enter.

The rules are simple: decorate your porch, front yard or business front for fall. When the decorations are complete, text your name and address to 850-260-4049, and someone will be by to photograph the decorations and handiwork.

Contest winners will be announced Oct. 26. Trophies will be awarded to winners in both home and business categories with the winners being published in local media.

Chipley Garden ClubÂ’s hope is this will bring a spark of fun and color to the community.

“Get out the fall leaves, pumpkins, gourds and scarecrows, and get busy decorating for fall,” said Chipley Garden Club’s Gweneth Collins.
