While visiting downtown Danville, Indiana for the 2014 Indiana Short Film Festival I was pleased to discover that the courthouse in Town Square was surrounded with scarecrows. It turns out that these characters were there in conjunction with The Scarecrow Festival held on the first Saturday of October by Downtown Danville in partnership with The Greater Danville Chamber of Commerce.
The following is reprinted from the Visit Downtown Danville website:
Our annual Scarecrow Display begins the first Saturday in October when the SCARECROWS return to the square. Families and businesses compete for pride and prizes as the courthouse lawn is lined with amazing examples of talent and creativity. Judges select winners from two categories, but the public gets to decide the winner of the coveted People’s Choice Award. The Scarecrow Contest entries remain on display the entire month of October. The contest entry fee is $5 and the first place winners in both the Family and Business categories take home $100 and a trophy…and bragging rights!
Sure glad I brought along the camera [smiley::D]
This guy gets my vote [smiley:eek]
