This event is the kick off to the "Scarecrows on Main St" contest that is held each year, where contestants of all ages can register their scarecrow and set it up on an assigned pole on Main St. in Clarence for everyone to see! If you want to create and submit a scarecrow to the contest, you must be in attendance this Saturday September 26th and 27th or call 716-432-7894 for more information.
This is a great opportunity for students from Christian schools all around WNY to meet new friends and interact with other students their age. There will be face painting, crafts, games, pumpkin decorating, a pie making contest, live music and more!
If you can't make it this weekend be sure to take your Catholic school students on a ride down Main St. to see all the different Scarecrows before the awards are announced on October 3rd.
