Time to dig around for some old dungarees, find a ratty plaid shirt, and scout the pumpkin patch for the perfect scarecrow head—HDPA is once again sponsoring the Prosser Scarecrow Contest. The theme for 2016 is Western. Following the theme is optional of course, but it should not be too much of a stretch for local folks to consider how their scarecrow might give a nod to All Cowboys. However, if you need some inspiration, check the HDPA Facebook page—we will be posting factoids about the western history here in Prosser.
As in the past, there will be two categories for voting on scarecrows—People’s Choice and Downtown Ambassador. People’s Choice is awarded to the scarecrow that garners the most quarters placed in the donation jar at its location. The money collected in this way will be used to help downtown merchants purchase candy for the Trick-or-Treat on Mainstreet event. The Downtown Ambassador scarecrow will be voted by a panel of celebrity judges and will be rated according to how well it represents or promotes our historic downtown core and the theme. After all, that is the mission of HDPA—to promote a lively downtown! Pick up your entry form today at the HDPA Office or give us a call!
