SCARECROWS ON THE SQUARE CONTEST OPENS
Join the fun of decorating Headland’s downtown with your own scarecrow for Headland Harvest Festival’s Scarecrows on the Square. Businesses, organizations, families and individuals are invited to design and display scarecrows in downtown Headland Sept. 28 through Nov. 1.
Participants must register their entries with the Headland Area Chamber Commerce and turn them in at the Municipal Complex for displaying downtown by Sept 27. Registration is $10 per entry which goes towards the cash prize for the winner. Voting will be held on Facebook and at the Municipal Complex Oct. 1-27 to determine the winning entry.
“This is the second year for Scarecrows on the Square and it’s become part of a ‘Scarecrow Trail’ connecting Dothan Botanical Gardens’ Scarecrows in the Garden and Abbeville’s Scarecrows at the Courthouse,” Chamber director Rhonda Harrison said. “It’s a great way for the whole community to be involved in the many activities that are a part of our Headland Harvest Festival which begins with the Harvest Pageant on Sept. 25 and the Harvest Run on Sept. 30. The scarecrows will be on display right on through Harvest Day Oct. 14 and Halloween Scream Oct. 31. The winner will be announced at PawsFest Oct. 28.”
A prize will also be awarded for the Best Scarecrow Selfie posted with #Headland Scarecrows.
