The Beardstown Fall Fun Festival will hold their 2nd annual scarecrow contest this year. The only change from last year’s event is that ALL scarecrows must be a minimum of five (5) feet tall. Scarecrows may be brought to the Fall Festival committee area of Art Zeeck Park on Saturday morning, Sept. 28, between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. for registration.
Voting for scarecrows will be conducted from 12 p.m. Saturday through 3 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 29. Winner of the contest will be announced after Gloriana’s concert on Sunday afternoon.
Entrants may reclaim their scarecrows between 5 - 6 p.m. Sunday. Any scarecrows not claimed by closing of the Festival on Sunday evening will become the property of the Fall Festival committee for disposal.
