1st Annual Branford Garden Club Scarecrow Contest On The Branford Green

If you've driven by the Branford Green this week you've seen some strange looking characters hanging around.  It's all part of the 1st Annual Branford Garden Club Scarecrow Contest on the Branford Green.

They've been on display since October 7th and tomorrow October 14th is the last day to stop by to see them and vote for your favorite.  The Branford Garden Club is sponsoring the event and members will be strolling around the green wearing their green and pink aprons accepting donations to replace the trees that were lost during tropical storm Irene.

Collections boxes for donations are also located at Branford Building Supply, Cohen's Bagels and Towne Pharmacy. 

I stopped by yesterday and it was so wonderful to see how many local organization businesses and families participated in decorating the green with so many unique looking scarecrows.  It's a fabulous display and the kids will love it!

George - They were some really amazing scarecrow creations.

Michelle - This first one was very successful and I'm sure that next year's will be even better.

Jane - If I were a judge it would be so hard to pick a winner.  They were all so awesome.

Leesa - So glad you liked the video.  There were other towns nearby that ran similar contests this year too.

Jeff - I hope it remains popular here Jeff.  It was so much fun strolling around the green to look at all of them.
