The Scarecrow Harvest is a time when our downtown Laurel community comes alive with colorful and creative life-size scarecrows. We invite businesses, non-profit organizations, schools, civic groups, families and individuals to design and display their own whimsical scarecrows. Anyone is welcome to create a scarecrow and join the fun!
Design and display your scarecrow in front of your business, hiding behind a bush, leaning against a street light, washing a window or even climbing a tree. The event is absolutely free and only requires your creativity! We ask that all scarecrows be installed by Friday, October 6, 2017, in time for judging and the Loblolly Festival on Saturday, October 7, 2017. Please make sure your scarecrow is tied down and secured so goblins and storms can’t take it away. Scarecrows will remain on view through the month of October and should be removed by Friday, November 3, 2017.
Judging for the top three scarecrow designs will be done on the Friday afternoon prior to the Loblolly Festival and winners announced during the Festival. Rumor has it that our favorite potter has been busy crafting mugs for all participants! We can’t wait to see what you come up with this season!
This contest is hosted by Laurel Main Street, for questions or concerns, please contact Judi Holifield, firstname.lastname@example.org or your block ambassador.
