Another interesting and fun activity slated for the Quesnel Fall Fair, Sept. 10 – 11 is the Scarecrow Challenge. The public can participate in two ways, first by building their own scarecrow at home on a 5-foot by 2.5-foot wooden cross frame. The subject matter categories are farmers, superheroes, family members or animals. Competitors can enter either individually or as a small group and parental involvement is encouraged so make it a family affair.
If you choose to make it at home, bring the completed scarecrow to the West Fraser Timber Room of the Arts and Rec Centre on Friday, Sept. 9 from 4 – 6 p.m.
The second way to enter this entertaining competition is by building a scarecrow right on the grounds on Sunday, Sept. 11 from 1 – 4 p.m. Supplies and frames will be available there. All other rules apply regarding categories and individual or team participation.
It’s highly probable these scarecrows will be photographed so make sure you include you wishes on the entry form, whether you give your permission or don’t give your permission.
Minor participations will require the signature of a parent or guardian.
