Logan’s Landing is pleased to announce the winners of the 2016 Scarecrow Row Competition. The secret panel of judges had a difficult decision to make, as all 44 entries displayed creativity and hard work, but only one scarecrow could be chosen as the winner. That winner is the “shop local” themed scarecrow created by the Nest. For creating the winning scarecrow, the Nest has received a free advertising package donated by Cass County Communication Network, Indiana’s Best Radio, and the Pharos-Tribune.
In addition, this year’s Scarecrow Row Competition also featured a People’s Choice Award, with votes being cast by “liking” scarecrows in the photo album on the Logan’s Landing facebook page. The winner of the People’s Choice Award was the State Theatre & Record Farm scarecrow, with an amazing 576 votes! The Lin’s Buffet donated the People’s Choice award of a $25 gift certificate to the lucky winner.
The scarecrows along Broadway and Market Street were enjoyed by passers-by, as well as hundreds of trick-or-treaters who participated in Downtown Spooktacular and the Elks Halloween parade. Logan’s Landing Executive Director Becki Harris said, “Once again, the scarecrows added a touch of seasonal fun to the downtown district – they were enjoyed by residents and visitors alike.”
