Get ready for an invasion – a Scarecrow Invasion! The Tower View Team would like the community to participate in this new, fun, and creative installation for the month of October.
This year, the theme is Scarecrow Invasion – Time Warp Edition, so scarecrows should be dressed up as a part of an era or decade. The committee would like to see a wide variety of scarecrows so think outside the box. Participants are asked to supply their own materials for the scarecrows.
In order to coordinate locations in the Main Street District, the TVT asks that an email is sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with name of contact person and any preference of location. The scarecrows can be sitting, standing, hanging around on the perimeter of the square and beyond the next few blocks. The committee will attach a sign on each scarecrow with the sponsoring name. Ginny Showman is the chairperson of this event along with support from the members of the Tower View Team.
The scarecrows are encouraged to be set in place throughout the month of October. The scarecrows will remain in place until November 1. The Tower View Team expects to draw extra visitors during the month of October through this project.
A Facebook Group page called The Scarecrow Invasion 2020 will have posted pictures of the scarecrows with the opportunity for voting. The popular vote winner will be awarded a trophy (see picture).
