Downtown Scarecrow Contest

To help liven up the downtown area for the Fall, Main Street Dodge City will be hosting a Scarecrow Contest as a part of Trick-or-Treat Downtown.  We would like to invite all area and downtown merchants and organizations to participate by coming up with their own scarecrow and having it on display during the event.

Contest Rules & Guidelines

  • Free to participate.  You may decorate your scarecrow however you like.  Be creative!
  • All scarecrows will need to be on display by 10:00 am, Saturday, October 29th.
  • Displays may be placed directly outside your business or in a prominent display window that can be seen from the sidewalk.  If your business/organization is not located within the downtown district, a location within the downtown area will be given to you.
  • All scarecrow displays will be juged by the Main Street Promotions Committee during the Trick-or-Treat Downtown event.  The winning business will be presented with a traveling trophy to display in their business for the following year.  In addition, trick-or-treaters will get the opportunity to vote for a Children’s Choice award as well.
  • Main Street Dodge City will not be responsible for materials or items used to decorate the scarecrow.
