Main Street Greeneville Scarecrow Contest

September 11–October 21, 2018

 

PRESS RELEASE
Date:  September 11, 2018 –Ninth Annual Scarecrow Contest Seeks Entries
Main Street Greeneville announces the ninth annual “Scarecrows of Main” competition to be held in downtown Greeneville. The contest is being sponsored again this year by Broyles General Store, which is located at 730 West Main Street.  Entries are not limited to only those within the display area.  Entries must however come from within Greene County or be a current 2018-19 member of Main Street Greeneville.  This contest is open to all ages, individuals, families, groups, clubs and businesses.  Each person, family or group may only enter one time.  There are 4 different categories:  Residential, group/organization, business or youth. 

The display area will include the eighteen block downtown area known as the Main Street District along with Main Street from the 11E Bypass to Crescent School.  Entries from outside the display area will be assigned a location within the area where they may place their scarecrow.

Let your imagination run wild as you create that scarecrow you have always wanted to make.  Could it be that we will see a straw ballerina, lawyer, shopkeeper, etc. hanging out in downtown for the next couple of weeks?  Scarecrows should be family friendly – whimsical, humorous, mischievous not frightening. 

No Entry Fee – Pre-registration Required
