Get a group or family together and build a fabulous creation for our scarecrow contest! We provide the frame and the straw; you provide the garnish and inspiration. Choose from one of the following categories:

Traditional: This is your down on the farm version of scarecrow, burlap, denim overalls, buttons, flannel shirts and anything recycled works for this category. Any organic scarecrows welcome.

Minion Madness: Help Stuart, Kevin, and Bob keep the crows out of the corn patch and save all of Minion kind! Anyone from the Minion movies is welcome in this category.

Star Wars: Bring out the Wookiees, Luke Skywalker, and Princess Leia to help scare the crows from the patch. Darth Vader would be really scary, wouldn’t he? Reach for the stars in this category.

Under the Sea: Dive deep into the ocean for this category.  All mermaids, sea creatures, and shell scarecrows are invited to join the quest to keep crows out of the corn patch.

Scarecrow clothing and accessories must be picked up by November 6. After November 6, clothing, etc. will be donated to a local charity. Scarecrow must remain on display at Alden Lane until Friday October 30th.  Plan to build for strong winds and rain!
