Scarecrow Contest

Some changes are coming to the Scarecrow Contest, and we need you to help keep this family-friendly tradition fun and safe. Scarecrow Stroll 2020 is being modified to work within Illinois Phase 4 guidelines for Covid-19. The Scarecrows will be placed throughout downtown and paired with businesses. Take part in the Scarecrow Stroll and see all the entries throughout the downtown. Please take note of below changes.

Changes this year:
•    All entries must be weighted down to stand on concrete/pavement (sandbags, water jugs, cinderblocks, etc.)
•    All entries must be a single upright scarecrow 
•    There is limited security this year - please see contest rules for details.

All entries must be submitted before 4:30 p.m. on September 18, 2020.
