The Batavia Business Improvement District is hosting its fourth annual Scarecrow Contest for Downtown Batavia sponsored by Home Depot and The Daily News. As a creative way to add some more fall flavor to downtown decorating, the BID has invited any business, organization or family to enter the contest. For $20 each business/family was provided basic supplies of straw, a post and zip ties along with their pole assignment. Each business could then get creative in creating their scarecrow. All voting for favorite scarecrow ends October 31st..
All Community Members are invited to vote for their favorite scarecrow through the Daily News, at DowntownBataviaNY.com or at Downtown Batavia Business Improvement District Facebook page.
First place winner receives $100 cash prize, second place $75 and third place $50. The BID would like to thank our local Batavia Home Depot for sponsoring the scarecrows and donating of posts and supplies, to our City of Batavia Fire Department for assembling the posts, and to The Daily News for assisting with the voting process.
