Scarecrows To Appear As New Participants in Centreville Day

~Families and Local Businesses Encouraged to Create, Display Icons of Americana

Queen Anne’s County’s Centre for the Arts is offering cash prizes for the most original, innovative, artistic scarecrows created as part of the third annual Centreville Day, Saturday, 02 November. Local residents and businesses are encouraged to call on their ingenuity and imagination to craft a scarecrow that can be affixed safely outside their home, business, or elsewhere – subject to approval – around downtown Centreville.

Scarecrow figures need follow no particular theme, so creativity is bound only by common sense and good taste. So that they may be seen from a distance, five to seven feet for the figures is the suggested height, and materials used should be able to withstand at least a few days of possible inclement weather. Scarecrows must be on display by Sunday, 27 October.

Full guidelines and regulations are available on the Centre for the Arts’ website, . For additional information, call 410 758 2520.

Winners will be announced and prizes awarded over the course of Centreville Day, 2 November, scheduled for 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
