The community is invited to join in on the 1st Downtown Scarecrow Contest hosted by the Downtown Associates! This event is open individuals, businesses, organizations, and clubs to participate and win prizes. The community will choose the winners of each category by voting for their favorite scarecrow on our website.
This event was created to decorate downtown for fall / Halloween and create something unique for families to enjoy while spending time downtown. There’s a $10.00 entry fee that will be used towards prizes for the winning scarecrows. Registration is open now through October 7th with the setup date for scarecrows to be on Saturday, October 15th. Voting will be opened to the public following setup and will remain open until October 27th with the winners being announced on October 28th.
We hope that this event will bring the community and families together by working on building their scarecrows and by strolling through downtown to enjoy all the creatively designed scarecrows that will be on display.
