New Providence Business is hosting the annual Scarecrow Contest, bringing a festive feel to our downtown! The contest encourages New Providence residents, businesses, civic organizations, school groups, sports teams, and families to build the wildest, cleverest, funniest scarecrows they can imagine (within contest guidelines). The scarecrows will be on display throughout the downtown to bring the community and businesses together. It’s a great opportunity to visit our fantastic stores and restaurants – they need your support now more than ever!
Prizes ($150) will be given for the best entry in each category:
- Ages 14 and under
- Ages 15 and over
The competition entries are open to only New Providence residents, businesses, and community organizations, but anyone can vote for their favorite.
The entry deadline is Saturday, Oct. 3. Starting Sat., Oct. 10, scarecrows will be placed along Springfield Ave. and South Street. People can vote for their favorite scarecrows from October 10 – November 1 , so make sure you spread the word to your family and friends.
