The 2013 Best in Show Scarecrow submitted by Wayne Westland Federal Credit Union

Bring the family out for this fun event – after the Wayne Farmer’s Market, Goudy Park will be the place to be! A bonfire will crackle as you sip on apple cider, roast marshmallows, and snack on donuts. Voting ballots will be available to choose what you think is the best scarecrow in town – two winners will be awarded this year! Walking around our Downtown to view the scarecrow submissions will be fun as local businesses keep their doors open later providing places to warm up if the fall weather is cool. This event is FREE and open to the public. If you decorated a scarecrow, we encourage you to invite all of your friends so that you can get as many votes as possible!
