Scarecrows must be constructed to withstand the elements and be appropriate for family viewing.
Drop off scarecrows Oct 1st through the 12th.

Scarecrows will remain on display until Festival Day Oct 14th The public will vote and prizes will be awarded.
Building a scarecrow is fairly simple. You will need a frame, clothes, stuffing and accessories.
YouTube has some videos, a Google search will bring up several instructional sites and there are tons of ideas on Pinterest
Need some inspiration?
Think about a scarecrow that represents your Club, Business or Organization, or a scarecrow inspired by your favorite movie, book, singer, or hobby.
Frames: 2x4's, pvc pipe, tomato cages, old broom handles or something similar.
Stuffing: Hay, straw, styrofoam, fiber fill, plastic grocery bags, bubble wrap, pool noodles. Newspaper is not a good choice as rains will make it lose its shape and become very heavy.
Heads: Buckets, milk jugs, plant pots, stuffed pillow cases or fabric
