Join the Business Decorating Competition. All business in the Municipality of Meaford are welcome to decorate.
Businesses decorate with scarecrows usually in the yearly theme but this is optional. The judges look for originality, creativity and effort. They like to see use of natural products or the incorporation of aspects of your business into the display. Judges will visit on the Tuesday or Wednesday before the Scarecrow Festival. They will not disturb your business but will drop off a participation poster. Judging is in three categories: Outdoor Display, Indoor Display and Window Display. Prizes include Scarecrow plaques and media prizes as well as the “Patches” statuette the Best of the Best for the overall best entry. Winners will be announce at the Family Festival but awards will be given at the Chamber of Commerce After 5 on October 20th.
At the Meaford Scarecrow Invasion Family Festival we will ask people to write their favorite business display on a ballot. We will randomly choose a ballot to award the newest category – “People’s Choice”.
Registration: BIA area businesses are registered if decorated by Sept. 26 th. Greater Municipality of Meaford Area businesses must e-mail Mary Solomon firstname.lastname@example.org by Sept. 24th with your business name and address to register.
