2020 ANNUAL SCARECROW CONTEST
SCARECROW CONTEST RULES AND REGISTRATION

Our goal is to decorate the community with unique scarecrows and have our community vote on the one they like best. Voting will be accessible here once all scarecrows are in place. 

This event will cost nothing except for a lot of imagination, a little time, a bale or two of hay, and some odds and ends to build your scarecrow. This also gives our local business owners who sponsor our events throughout the year some free advertising in a positive and fun way.

We hope you will come and and join us for this special event!

Register by October 15th to get your Scarecrow in for votes.

Parties in the Park will have voting open here once Scarecrows are on display. Please review the rules and guidelines below. The Scarecrow with the most votes will be announced on October 31st. 

Good luck!
