Deadline for scarecrow contest nears

The registration deadline for the island's scarecrow competition is fast approaching.

Islanders who wish to design and create a scarecrow for the Harvest Fair competition must register by Friday, Sept. 14.

The competition is a first of its kind, and comes from the partnership between the Bainbridge Island Police Department and Friends of the Farms as part of the island's upcoming Harvest Fair. The fair is Sunday, Sept. 30 at the Johnson Farm.

Islanders of all ages can design their own scarecrow and enter them into one, or all, of four categories: artistic, business, family or traditional.

Scarecrows will be on display around Bainbridge Island from Sept. 17 through Sept. 29, before the Harvest Fair kicks off.

The first-place winners in each category will be presented at the Harvest Fair.
