The Scarecrow Stroll: Creativity on Display

2010 Wizard of Oz scarecrows at Helmut's Strudel
Unfamiliar with the HarvestFest Scarecrow Stroll? It's a festival tradition, with creative, imaginative scarecrows set up from Bearskin Neck to Harvey Park to Beach Street. Be sure to stop by the Information Booth in Dock Square to pick up your ballot. You can vote for your favorite scarecrow(s) with the winner receiving glory and a smokin' rosette. It's an honor to win the competition for the HarvestFest Scarecrow Stroll as the competition is pretty impressive. A few can't-miss locations:
  • Tuscan Designs at 79 Main Street, scarecrow by Jane Beauvais 
  • Willougby's at 20 Main Street, scarecrow Meredyth Impey 
  • Emerson Inn, scarecrow located at the corner of Pier Ave & Main Street
