Nineteen creative characters have livened up Dayville’s main street this month for the town’s sixth annual scarecrow contest.
Winners this year are Julianna Moulton and grandkids, first; Emma Winkelman, second; and Lyndee Biller, third.
City Recorder Ruthie Moore said they had the most entries since starting the contest in 2012.
“We had quite a few first-time creators this year,” she said. “It’s really fun to see others catch the scarecrow bug and realize how fun it is to create these wonderful guys and gals.”
Biller, who is expecting, made a pregnant scarecrow, and across the street is a father scarecrow taking a small child trick-or-treating — on a kid’s tractor.
“We thank all those who created a new October resident for our town,” Moore said. “We love having them visit.”
