Calling all Kids. It is time again for the Berthoud Main Street’s annual Scarecrow Contest. The judging will be held on Saturday, October 1 at 4 pm at the Berthoud Oktoberfest. After the judging, all the scarecrows will be displayed on Mountain Avenue during the month of October. Go to www.BerthoudOktoberfest.com for more information.
Building a scarecrow is easy and fun. Main Street provides the frames and head, and you supply the creativity and clothes. You can pick up materials and make your scarecrow at home, but it is more fun to attend one of the design dates being held at the Berthoud Community Library.
September 26 – 30. Frames and heads can be picked up at the library during regular hours.
Tuesday, September 27 and Thursday, September 29 from 3 to 5 p.m. are the design/building dates. Come to the library to make your scarecrow. Make sure to bring clothes for your scarecrow to wear.
Bring finished scarecrows to the Berthoud Oktoberfest in Fickel Park on October 1. Judging will take place at 4 pm on the main stage.
