Scarecrows in the Park is coming!

It’s going to be SPOOKTACULAR…

Lakes Park Enrichment Foundation to host ninth annual “Scarecrows in the Park” contest Oct. 12-28

Lakes Park Enrichment Foundation invites the Southwest Florida community to participate in its ninth annual “Scarecrows in the Park” contest during the Lakes Park Fall Festival. The Festival takes place Oct. 12-28 at Lakes Regional Park. Local businesses, organizations, elementary, middle, and high schools, community members and youth groups can join the contest fun by fashioning custom-made scarecrows to be displayed at Lakes Park during the festival.

Proceeds will benefit the Lakes Park Enrichment Foundation to support the Children’s Discovery Garden at Lakes Regional Park.  Prizes will be awarded in multiple categories by a celebrity judge team. Fall Festival attendees will vote for their favorites in the People’s Choice competition.

Teachers, Scout troop leaders, business sponsors, youth group leaders, non-profits, and anyone else interested in participating should email Foundation Executive Director, Erin White at . You’ll be placed on a mailing list for Scarecrows-related communications, including official application, sponsor/builder match-ups, deadlines and build schedules, and any other related communications.
