Can You Guess Who This Is?Wilton Connecticut Halloween Parade Scarecrow Contest

Traditions promote a sense of pride and help citizens grow tighter as a community. In the lovely hamlet of Wilton, Connecticut where I'm proud to call home, many traditions abound. 

For four years, the Wilton Chamber of Commerce has hosted a contest to showcase local businesses, nonprofits, families and other groups. For the latter half of October, over fifty lampposts downtown are adorned with scarecrows ranging from Mork from Ork to the Wilton Warrior, our town’s sports mascot.

Welcomed by the quintessential backdrop of vibrant New England foliage, one can stroll the sidewalks and admire the many hours of effort and creativity expended on designing these masterpieces.

There are even prizes awarded in several categories such as funniest and scariest which will be announced at the annual pumpkin parade (yet another tradition!).

Help jumpstart a new tradition in your town!

 PS – This scarecrow, created by my colleague Elizabeth Walsh, depicts the illustrious real estate pioneer, Barbara Corcoran!

Hi Scott, welcome to the Rain and congratulations on your first post and feature. There is a town nearby that also decorates each street pole. It is fun to drive by and see all the Halloween creations.

Dedicated. Qualified. Local.

That sounds like something that could be implemented fairly easily in my town and have plenty of support from the neighbors.

I don't watch Shark Tank, but I do know what Barbara looks like. Very clever.

And she'd be one scary scarecrow if she gets into sharktank mode.

It's a great idea.  I can't imagine the scarecrows we'd see in my neighborhood (Capitol Hill, DC). Most would be scary ghouls.
