It’s time to bring out the straw and build your scarecrow for the third annual City of Rincon Scarecrow Show-Off.
This year prizes will be awarded for first, second and third places in two different categories.
“We want to have more participation than ever,” said George Foley, recreation coordinator for Rincon. “We want to get as many businesses, churches, families, and nonprofit organizations to participate as possible. How great would it be to have fall scarecrow displays all down Highway 21 and throughout many different neighborhoods in Rincon?”
The city also wants to encourage families to take a tour of the scarecrow displays and have added businesses within the Rincon business district to the list. These include many businesses and churches along Ga. 21 with a Rincon address.
“We are looking for humor, creativity, and fun in these displays,” Foley said. “Let’s show off our hometown pride.”
• Top three scarecrow displays in the residential category;
• Top three in the business/church/non-profit category combined for a total of six prizes.
First, second, and third place will choose one of the following prizes as their reward:
• Choice 1: Free City of Rincon water/utility bill up to $75
• Choice 2: Round of golf for two anytime, including cart fees, at Lost Plantation golf course
• Choice 3: Free $50 gift card to Lost Plantation which can be used at the pro shop, at the Grill, or for playing golf.
