Most importantly - HAVE FUN!
- Scarecrows and décor must be made as weather-resistant as possible.
- Non-organic décor is preferred (fake pumpkins, gourds, flowers, etc.) If you choose to use organic materials, monitor regularly, and remove decaying items.
- Scarecrows must be appropriate for public viewing. No inappropriate or overly frightening designs. Remember this is a family-friendly event.
- You must provide one hay bale for your display.
- Main Street will provide signage with your scarecrow's name.
- Please check on your scarecrow regularly. Voting is open through most of October, so you want to keep your scarecrow looking fresh!
- Your scarecrow must be set up in your designated location no later than October 1st.
- After the competition ends, scarecrow displays must be picked up no later than Friday, October 29 - UNLESS you are an award winner.
- Winners will be announced Tuesday, October 26th, and contacted to schedule a time on the 28th or 29th for a photo - AND to receive a check from the sponsor!
- Have fun and be creative!
