Calling all scarecrow artists! New this year to the Lakeville Arts & Music Festival will be a Scarecrow Decorating contest open to residents and businesses of Lakeville, Middleborough, Freetown, Berkley, Rochester, Taunton and Raynham.
There will be three decorating categories: traditional, other, and business. Traditional scarecrows will be the traditional farm and garden scarecrows, made with cast-off clothing, corn stalks, straw, etc. Suggestions for the other category could be most unusual, scary, funny, whimsical, celebrity and most artistic. Businesses are encouraged to enter with either a scarecrow representative of their business or something in the other categories.
Finalists will be asked to bring their scarecrow for display at the Lakeville Arts & Music Festival on October 4, 2014 for Festival attendees to vote on to pick the best scarecrow in each category. Entries are due by September 17, 2014 (see rules for specifics).
Entry forms and rules are available on line at www.lakevillema.org on the Home Page. You may also pick up an entry form at the Lakeville Library or the Selectmen’s Office at Town Hall or email LakevilleFestival@hotmail.com to have an entry form emailed to you.
Break out your imagination and show us your best scarecrow!!!
