Georgetown: Additional ‘zip’ with Arts & Flowers Scarecrow Contest

GEORGETOWN – In several weeks the Dog Days of August will give way to fall.

In keeping with the autumn season, efforts are underway to bring an entertaining scare to Georgetown and give businesses something to really crow about.

The non-profit Arts & Flowers group is sponsoring the Arts & Flowers Scarecrow Contest, this year open to any business that has a 19947 zip-code.

For some years, the Arts & Flowers group has been decorating the town of Georgetown with scarecrows each fall, created by businesses to advertise their business. These businesses were basically located in the heart of the town – The Circle and several adjoining streets. It is a fall highlight for the town of Georgetown.

This year there is a new twist as any business in 19947 is eligible.

Businesses must register to be able to participate. Space is limited to just 18 poles.

To make it even more exciting, there are prizes with a $100 VISA gift card to be awarded to three businesses for their creativity.

Deadline for registration is Friday, Aug. 31

Rules for this contest are as follows:

  • Must have a business (physical presence) in the Georgetown zip code19947
  • Must use the t‐form provided – and limit the width to four feet.
  • No fresh produce may be used (i.e. pumpkins, corn, etc.)
  • Must be durable – the scarecrow will be cable tied to the poles. All parts of the scarecrow must be attached in a method that withstands rain and wind associated with being outside.
  • Advertisement of your business must be visible.
  • The Arts & Flowers group has the right to eliminate any scarecrow that does not fit a family-oriented theme.
