Scarecrow Workshops are scheduled for September

FALLBROOK – The Scarecrows are having the final finishing touches done in anticipation of Fallbrook Scarecrow Days Oct. 1-31. New scarecrows and the ever popular ones will be finished in time to make room for scarecrow building workshops in September.

The workshops provide any assistance needed to build and create scarecrows. Frames, body parts and even clothing are available for participants' convenience. The workshops are on Sept. 7, 8, 9, 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23, 28, and 30 at 300 N. Brandon St., Unit 6. Register for the workshops and find all Scarecrow Days information at fallbrookchamberofcommerce.org./Events/Scarecrow Days.

When building, be thinking about what category to enter for the scarecrow contest. They are:" Reduce, reuse, recycle," "Funniest/humor," "WOW factor," "Promoting business," "Artistic merit," "Pop Culture," "Traditional scarecrow," "Kids" (made by youth group and family) and "Iconic."

Even if not entering the contest, scarecrow builders can register their scarecrows with the Fallbrook Chamber to be placed on the viewing list along with the contest scarecrows. This is a great opportunity for visitors to explore Fallbrook when viewing scarecrows.

The ScareCREW and Fallbrook Chamber are excited to announce that there will be a scarecrow scavenger hunt the entire month of October. Be watching for more details as this develops.

New crafts await kids at Scarecrow Kids Corner on Saturdays at the Farmers and Artisan Market starting Sept. 9 through Oct. 7. Fallbrook Scarecrow Days information will also be located at this kiosk.
