Come see the Cutest, Craftiest, Craziest collection of Scarecrows in Maryland for the 12th Annual Scarecrows March in Middletown.
Local residents and businesses vie for the scarecrow kits (we hand out 50-60 kits) to decorate. The collection we see each year is truly amazing! Some are adorably themed to timely events or cultural trends (think Olaf from Frozen a few years back), others are truly crafting at its best using unusual materials to advertise a local business, others are simply just fun (one year, one was a large giraffe!).
While this is a beloved local event, it is turning into a regional draw for folks who just want to come see something fun, unusual, and to celebrate the fall season. Adults love to see these characters as much as children!
Come October 19th between 2pm and 5pm to walk, view, and vote for your favorites. Snacks and beverages will be available to enjoy while you take in the details of each Scarecrow!
NOTE: This year, Scarecrows will be displayed along Green Street (just north of Main Street) due to the road and sidewalk construction project on Main Street.
Scarecrows do stay up until the weekend after Halloween, so another way to enjoy the display is to make a day of it start the day with breakfast in Middletown, take a stroll down the street, next head out to nearby Jumbo’s Pumpkin Patch to pick your own pumpkin! And maybe you too, will be inspired to pick up some extra straw, and make your own scarecrow!!
DATE: Saturday, October 19, 2-5pm. Vote for your Favorite!
TIME: Vote between 2-5pm on the 19th
ABOUT: Stroller friendly, dog friendly!
PLACE: Green Street, Middletown
NOTE: Make sure to visit the scarecrows before they fly away on November 1st
