creative, and think you could decorate a winning scarecrow? If so, enter the Village
of Palatine Beautification Commission’s annual Scarecrow Contest!
Entrants are provided with a wooden [scarecrow] skeleton; materials are donated by the Palatine Home Depot.
There are still several available skeletons right now for those interested in participating in this annual event, which will be judged on Saturday, September 21 during Oktoberfest, which is hosted by the Rotary Club of Palatine.
Itinerary for Scarecrows on Parade Contest:
Participants drop off scarecrows between 11 a.m. and noon on Saturday, September 21 at Brockway and Slade streets. Scarecrows will be judged at noon, and winners will be announced around 12:30 p.m. in the Oktoberfest main tent.
All scarecrows will remain on display along the railwalk for several weeks after Oktoberfest wraps up on Sunday, September 22.
