Scarecrow Days announces new competition
July 23, 2014Fallbrook Scarecrow Days, held during the month of October, has just announced a new category - "Professional Artist." The popular event is in its third season, thanks to the generous donation of sponsor, San Diego Gas & Electric.
During the month, Scarecrows of various shapes, sizes and themes will be seen from Mission Avenue to Main Street – in the front of almost every business. "Scarecrows Days" was started to help bring tourism to our wonderful town of Fallbrook," said event coordinator Jackie Heyneman.
Artists will be invited to create a scarecrow and add a "touch of class" to their new favorite harvest companion. Two prizes will be awarded: "Harvest Award" - $100.00, sponsored by The Brandon Gallery and "Pumpkin Award" - $50.00, sponsored by Jackie Heyneman.
A helpful workshop on structure and basic construction will be conducted and basic supplies will be provided. For dates and times, see the Chamber of Commerce website at www.fallbrookchamberofcommerce.org
