MARIETTA – Despite the decision to cancel the 2020 HarvestFest due to COVID-19, Marietta Parks and Recreation will still host their annual Scarecrows in the Square contest.

Registration is now open for the 15th Annual Scarecrows in the Square contest. Please remember each group or organization must register by September 25, 2020 to decorate a Scarecrow on the Square by displaying your group, business or school’s creativity and personality via a scarecrow!

Registration forms are available online for the public scarecrow contest. Entries will be judged on originality, construction and presentation. Creators are urged to use a theme and name that showcases the business or group’s personality or celebrates Marietta’s history with a historic figure.

While there is a $25 entry fee for each scarecrow in the public scarecrow contest, there is no entry fee for school scarecrows. All scarecrows must be completed and displayed during the week of September 28th through October 4th. Judging will occur on October 12th and the winners of the contest will be announced online on October 16, 2020.

More info: Marietta’s Parks and Recreation Department, 770-794-5601.
