It’s new this year! A no-holds barred, 15 minute time limit scarecrow decorating challenge for up to 10 teams. We’ll provide all the materials, you provide the design inspiration!

The Scramble begins at 11:30 am on Sunday, October 2nd on the Great Lawn of the Community Centre – registration opens at 10am that morning at the scarecrow booth beside the 10 empty scarecrow stands.

Immediately at the end of the 15 minute scramble, our Scramble sponsor, Park Royal, will judge and name the winner of the best Scarecrow Scramble.
