Photo Ops with a Scarecrow
Drop off scarecrows at the table outside the shed any time from October 10th on.
Have your name, phone #, and category pinned to the back of the scarecrow.
Scarecrows will be on display at the Gardens until Festival Day when the public will vote and prizes awarded.
After the festival (with owner permission), scarecrows will be displayed in the city of Live Oak.
Need some inspiration?

Frames: 2x4's, pvc pipe, tomato cages, old broom handles or something similar.
