REGISTRATION HAS CLOSED for the 2023 SCARECROWS and SKELETONS of FIRCREST Display Contest. It’s time to build the scarecrows and decorate for the fall. AND this year, creative skeleton displays are now eligible to join in the contest!
Your display can be whimsical, happy AND/OR scary! It can include a single creative scarecrow, skeleton OR create a huge display with both! It’s up to you!
This is NOT your ordinary scarecrow building competition. Your goal is to create the most creative and unique scarecrow / skeleton in Fircrest. And the challenge is on! *
The rules are simple
- You have your choice of creating a creative scarecrow, skeleton OR both.
- Be creative. (please see examples below)
- Think outside the box.
- You can create one scarecrow / skeleton or a big display of both … it’s up to you!
- Have FUN.
- Keep it clean (PG rated for our young community members).
- Your display must be visible from the street.
- AND finally … the display must be made by you (not purchased, rented or borrowed). Of course the basic skeleton can be purchased! 😉
