People, businesses, and organizations enter their scarecrow int a contest run by the people’s votes. The scarecrows get to hang out along main street for the week, though the judging happens on the first weekend while the scarecrows are fresh. There are prizes but really it’s a fun chance to get everybody out and talking about them. Some of them loosely resemble scarecrows, but all of them tell a story.
This year, we decided to get involved. Our theme was of course “countdown to summer”, already and made some of our own rules.
- Dave can not make it out of gunite. (that was a hard rule for Dave)
- The kids are in charge. (that lasted 15 minutes)
- There is nothing precise about a scarecrow
- Have fun
As you can tell our very (not so scary) scarecrow is holding onto summer as long as possible. Our Precision crew was up early to setup, as we had a full day of working on pools.
If you missed the festival, you can still check out the decorations. They are up along main street for another week before they are gone. We took some pictures of some of our favorites in case you missed them.
