The City of Imperial Beach know this has been a tough time for everyone. While many businesses have been able to resume an alternate way of opening, some businesses still have their lights off.

The City wants to get all our businesses open and back to a normal routine. There are many residents and visitors in our community not wearing a mask, and businesses not enforcing this policy.

To encourage mask wearing, the City is launching a window decorating contest with the “Mask Up” theme. When the City says decorate, the sky is the limit. So join in, decorate your window using “Mask Up,” be creative, and let’s get rid of COVID for good!

Unopened businesses can still participate and join the cause to help get back to business.

Judging will be done by residents during the scavenger hunt hosted by the San Diego Bicycle Coalition. Judging will begin on the first day of the scavenger hunt, which is Sept. 4. Windows should be decorated before the scavenger hunt begins. The last day of the scavenger hunt is Sept. 21, but feel windows can stay decorated afterwards.

The winner of the contest will be announced following the scavenger hunt.

Sign up to participate as an individual or a business in the scavenger hunt. Now is the time to sign up your business or organization. Submit challenges that highlight and benefit your work and/or contribute a prize.
