Scarecrow Contest

Main Street Hartsville is hosting a Downtown Scarecrow Contest this October!

Cute, creepy, and anything in between. Show off your creativity with a Scarecrow in Downtown Hartsville. This is a great way for businesses, organizations, and even just families to help make Downtown Hartsville a festive place to be this fall!

Entry into the contest is free. Should you wish to buy a Scarecrow Starter-Kit from Main Street for $20, we will provide you one.

A Scarecrow Starter-Kit includes a wooden T-frame for the body of the scarecrow, a pipe that fits into the sidewalk flag holes, and a d-clamp to secure the frame to the pole. If you don’t want a Scarecrow Starter-Kit, you are welcome to build your own frame!

Register to participate using the form below.

Prizes will be awarded in both a Judge’s Choice Category and a Social Media People’s Choice Category. Winners receive goodie baskets with goods purchased from Downtown Businesses.

Scarecrows are due by Friday, October 21st, 2022 by 5:00 pm. Scarecrows must be registered on our website by October 15th to be entered into the judging. Your scarecrow location will be sent via email the week of the contest. Late entries will be accepted, but may not be eligible for judging.
