The Scarecrows are Coming! 
Time to Register for the 21st Annual Scarecrow Contest on the Colchester Town Green

It’s time to get creative and start planning your scarecrow display! Friends, neighbors, businesses, and local organizations can compete against each other or just participate and have a great time. The 2019 Scarecrow Contest will be held from October 4-25 on the Colchester Town Green. 

This event is open to all, so join friends and neighbors, local businesses and organizations for a fun fall activity and a chance to win prizes! Prize categories include scariest, funniest, and most imaginative. Setup of scarecrow displays is October 1st through the 4th, and there will be a special Scarecrow Kickoff event on Friday, Oct. 9th at 6:00 p.m.

We request that you set up your display before the kickoff event so that everyone can see your creations!
