NAPPANEE — Amish Acres in Nappanee will be hosting a Scarecrow Contest and Reunion Sept. 16 – Oct. 30. It takes 200 scarecrows to return to the farm for their annual reunion to stand guard along the lane as the hay wagon hauls kids to the pumpkin patch during Fall Harvest Days at Amish Acres.
Lining the lane, these creative creations come from far and wide as individuals, families, friends and groups of all kinds to compete for a cash prize and other prizes. Winners will be selected by the votes from visitors. If participating in this scary creation, be sure to bring the scarecrow by Sept. 16.
All churches, service clubs, schools, scouts, libraries, families, senior centers, day cares, bowling leagues, euchre and bridge groups, music and sports booster, company and office departments and neighbors are invited to participate in the long but rewarding task.
All Scarecrows must be self standing, life size and resilient with all accessories securely attached as they will remain outside through the end of Fall Harvest Days and become property of Amish Acres.
