Scarecrow Contest

Presented by The Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce

Scarecrow Contest brought to you by Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce

OCT 1st — OCT 31st

The Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce & Visitors Bureau is very excited to promote our Second Annual Scarecrow Contest! Our towns are well known for attracting fans of Halloween, including a cross-river Zombie Crawl, Rocky Horror Picture Show, Ghost Tours, High Heel Contests and dozens of incredibly decorated homes and businesses. Other contests in the area attract thousands of visitors.


Get Started Now!

The Sooner You Start, The Better Chance Of Being The Winner!

It’s Free To Participate

The Delaware River Towns Chamber of Commerce is very excited to announce our first ever Scarecrow Contest! The Chamber will help promote your scarecrow (and your business!) by providing posters for your window, sharing your photo on our social media posts, radio advertising and an ad in the Herald, an online gallery, and a Voting Poll.


Gather your ideas and materials.

Need some inspiration? Here’s a few ideas to get you started!

Basic: Use some old clothes and a fun t-shirt. Stuff it with hay and call it a day!

Step It Up: Come up with a theme that matches your business. Waiter Scarecrow for your restaurant, or wrap it up with gauze to make a mummy day-at-the-spa scarecrow. You get the idea…

Advanced: Team up with your neighbors, create a theme, and encourage your patrons to visit each location to take a photo of all of your scarecrows.

Register Your Scarecrow Online

Once your Scarecrow comes to life, take a photo in front of your business, and register your scarecrow (see below). Again, it’s FREE to participate.

Promote Your Creation! Share, Post, Make It Go Viral!

Encourage others to participate so we have an army of scarecrows to really make this a blast! The more we have, the more visitors we’ll attract to come to your shops and businesses. The Chamber we will be advertising the contest via radio, press releases, social media and print advertising.

Be A Winner!

From October 1st thru October 31st, the Scarecrow Contest will gather votes, track social media check-ins, shares, and activity to select contest winners. Various prizes will be awarded to best scarecrow and to the patrons who visit the most scarecrows.

Meghan Money Maker is a scarecrow from Milford, NJ. She strolled into town to show off her new look. She obtained a new hair style this year and added more money and stock market-themed accessories to her overall look. She is very excited for the Halloween Parade in Milford this year happening on Sunday, October 27th. Make sure if you see her in front of the Milford Laundromat that you give her a wink. She wants everyone to know that her head is filled with straw, but her real life counterpart can really help you if you need assistance with your finances.
