Dress a scarecrow for the Fall Festival
COTTONWOOD -- The return of the Fall Festival at the Verde Valley Fairgrounds this year brings, for the first time, a Scarecrow Contest. Sponsor a scarecrow for $25, then bring your team to the Fairgrounds on Oct. 25 to build and dress your scarecrow. VVF will provide the head, straw and frame; you just bring signage, clothes and accessories.
Each entry will have a 10-by-6-foot space to display their creation and promote their business. Be creative and have some fun. Trophies will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place at the end of the Saturday festival.
The Fall Festival is Oct. 25 from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. There is no entrance fee and the day includes a Family rodeo, Arts and Craft Fair, the inaugural year of the Pumpkin Chunkin', Scarecrow Contest, Tractor Pull, BBQ, Dance and Pumpkin Patch and lots of family fun.
There will be a Sneak Peak-Fundraiser on the evening of Oct. 24, 5-8 p.m.
