Scarecrow Building Contest For Horribles Parade
You’ve Got the Right Stuff – Build Your Own Scarecrow Contest.

The 2017 Horribles will include the City’s 2nd annual You’ve Got the Right Stuff – Build Your Own Scarecrow Contest. Residents of all ages and groups/organizations are invited to participate. Frames for building your scarecrow can be obtained at the Recreation Center at 239 Concord Rd from October 9th – October 21st during regular business hours.


The frames have been designed to facilitate easy construction and will allow all scarecrows to be displayed and viewed in a standing position around Union Common on October 26th.

Completed scarecrows can be delivered to the Recreational Center by Tuesday October 24th during normal business hours. Submissions must include an index card noting the participant’s name, contact information. Additionally, each participant’s name should be affixed to their scarecrow.

Scarecrows will be judged in 3 categories; youth, individual, and organization/group. One winner from each category will be selected for their creativity and awarded a gift certificate, donated by local Marlborough businesses. Awardees will be notified October 28, 2017.

The frames make building your scarecrow easy. Your scarecrow can be made from items such as old clothes, a pillowcase for the face, newspaper for stuffing, and string to join the scarecrow together.  There are many on-line videos detailing how to begin building your scarecrow.  We found one that you may like to review before you begin.
