Paint the Town Teal in Downtown Conway celebrates CCU's Homecoming week

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – The 10th annual Paint the Town Teal contest was held in Downtown Conway on Tuesday in celebration of Coastal Carolina University's Homecoming week.

Fourteen businesses, concentrated on 3rd Avenue and Main Street, participated in letting 13 groups of CCU students paint on their storefront windows.

The paintings were judged on first impression, theme, use of space, colors, school spirit, and originality.

"Forever Teal" is the theme for this year's Homecoming.

The winner will be announced at the Homecoming game on Saturday when the Coastal Carolina Chanticleers take on the Alabama A&M Bulldogs, according to the CCU website.

The artwork will be up all week for viewing.
