Scare up some fun: Enter Marblehead’s Scarecrow Stroll

The Marblehead Recreation and Parks Department is seeking scarecrow contest entries for its fourth annual Scarecrow Stroll on Oct. 14.

Last year’s event drew more than 1,000 children and families who trick-or-treated along a path of more than 60 scarecrows. Prizes were awarded for the best scarecrows in categories including best business, best organization and best family/individual display.

Businesses, organizations and families can enter the contest through Oct. 12. Scarecrow frames can be purchased for $12 at the Marblehead Community Center.

Scarecrows will be set up the morning of Oct. 14 before trick-or-treating begins that afternoon. Entry information is available at
