Believe it or not, we’re only a few weeks away from September, and that means it’s already time for the 32nd annual Peddler’s Village Scarecrow Competition and Display. With competition entries due Sunday, September 5th, it’s time to start brainstorming your amazing 2010 scarecrow ideas. Every year, over 100 participants enter their very own festive scarecrows for the chance to win $5,000 in prizes (and have a great time doing it)! Plus, this year Peddler’s Village & Bucks Happening will have some extra surprises in store so register soon.
Below are the various categories you can enter under:
1. Quite the Character Scarecrow: Open the world of possibilities as you create a scarecrow interpretation of your favorite television character—human, animal or animated!
2. Traditional/Whirligig Scarecrow: Paying homage to the scarecrows that have been “scaring crows’ from the farmers’ fields and gardens for centuries. Parts move or make noise when the wind gusts to make it a true whirligig!
3. The Keystone Krow: A person, place or thing—past, present or future that says “Pennsylvania.”
4. An Extraordinary Contemporary Scarecrow: Not necessarily a “Scarecrow,” more like a cutting edge creation for the garden.
5. Kids Only! Scarecrow: Kids 12 and under create crows and compete with their peers.
6. Group Scarecrow: A group scarecrow project for a school, church, office, club, scout troop, neighborhood, etc.
Bucks Happening has been hard at work creating our very own scarecrow for this year’s festival. With our 2 new Bucks Happening team members, it has been the perfect activity to bring the group together! Check out some highlights from our scarecrow making adventure below:
The official festival will be held September 18-19, 10 a.m. – 6pm, rain or shine. With scarecrow making workshops, live music, a pumpkin pie eating contest, & free parking and access, it is a can’t miss fall event in Bucks County. We’ll be keeping you posted on all the goodies at Bucks Happening.
Hurry up & register to create your very own scarecrow here or for more information, please call 215-794-4000.
