Scarecrow Contest & Children's Craft Event

Downtown Wake Forest
Downtown Wake Forest Saturday, October 15th 1pm-3pm Free Admission

As a "Hello to Fall," and in anticipation of the sights and sounds of Halloween, the Wake Forest Woman"s Club is sponsoring a Scarecrow Contest and children"s craft event in downtown Wake Forest (Rain date: Sunday, Oct. 16).

Local schools, churches and businesses have been invited to participate in designing and building a scarecrow for the contest (not taller than 6 ft.). The entries will then be secured to the lamp posts up and down South White Street on Friday, Oct. 14. Each entry will be given a number. The public is invited to view all the entries during a Scarecrow "Walk-about" throughout Saturday morning, and will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite at the Fidelity Bank parking lot, located at 231 S. White St.

The Woman"s Club will have several fun activities for children and families at the Fidelity Bank site, including scarecrow-themed crafts, tattoos, a photo area with pumpkins and hay bales, and free snacks.

The Wake Forest Fire Department will be there to provide an up close look at one of the fire trucks.

Also, just prior to the start of the Woman"s Club event, Page 158 Books, 158 S. White St., will be reading a scarecrow-themed book, during their regularly scheduled Saturday Story Time of Noon to 1 pm. So, plan now to come on down and enjoy.
