Scarecrows are invading downtown Paris with a new event called “Scarecrows on the Square”. This is a FREE event sponsored by the Downtown Paris Association (DPA).
Kathy Ray, DPA Executive Director said, “This is a great opportunity to let your creativity take hold and have some fun. We encourage you to be environmentally conscious and recycle items to fit with the theme of your group, school, or business. Use a theme and name that fits your group’s personality or celebrate Paris history with a historic Paris figure!”
Carly Wheat, DPA Committee chair said, “Scarecrows will be judged the third week of October. Scarecrows will be judged on originality, construction, and presentation. Cash prizes will be awarded for People’s Choice, Most Original, Best Constructed, and Best in Show. Winners will be announced on October 22nd at Spooktacular.”
