MARIETTA - Registration is now open for the City of Marietta's Parks and Recreation Department’s 18th Annual Scarecrows in the Square contest. Please remember each group or organization must register by September 22, 2023, 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.
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 October 2-October 9, 2023.
