The deadline to sign up for the Blaine Chamber of Commerce scarecrow competition is October 1. Blaine businesses and residents are invited to create a scarecrow using such materials as corn stalks, straw bales and pumpkins, as well as any props necessary.
Decorations should be in place by October 9 and participants are encouraged to register at the Blaine Visitor Center so they are included in the scarecrow walk map.
The map will include merchant coupons and advertisements on the back for local businesses. Forms to be included in the map are available at the Blaine Visitor Center. Prizes will be awarded.
