Scarecrow workshops scheduled in September
FALLBROOK – The Munchkins are dressed and ready to join the other Wizard of Oz characters on the roof of Ace Hardware for Fallbrook Scarecrow Days from October 1-31. New scarecrows, the Pillow Fight Kids, Harry Potter, Tin Can Man and several more are completed in time to make way for scarecrow building workshops.
The ScareCREW invites businesses, community groups or individuals to
workshops to have fun, help create tourism and community spirit. Create, buy, rent or associate a scarecrow. Workshops have kits, equipment, supplies, and design elements needed to help create any type of scarecrow.
The dates of the workshops are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from September 1 to 3, from September 8 to 10, from September 15 to 17, from September 22 to 24. Hours are 9 a.m. at noon at 300 N. Brandon Road, Unit 6. To reserve a date and time, contact the Fallbrook Chamber of Commerce. Slots for larger groups can also be arranged through the Chamber.
For businesses or residents who don’t have time to build their own scarecrow, the ScareCREW has many scarecrows to rent or buy. Choices include new unique and quirky scarecrows as well as favorites.
In case of competition, the categories are: reduce, reuse, recycle; Funniest/Humour, WOW Factor, Business Promotion, Artistic Merit, Pop Culture, Traditional Scarecrow, Kids (Made by Youth Group or Family) and Iconic. Or consider recording your scarecrow for viewing.
Workshop reservations, competition and participation forms and rental forms are available for download or withdrawal on https://www.fallbrookchamberofcommerce.org/.
Scarecrow Days Kids Corner begins September 1 at the Farmers Market every Saturday through October 15.
