WOW! It was amazing to see all of the creations. I'm pretty sure all who attended the festival were equally as impressed. Each and every scarecrow had a unique feature! As I watched people of all ages inspect the Scarecrows and their fun themes and details I noticed people really had a tough time deciding where to put their one single vote! More than 800 votes were cast!
The Dexter Lions Club announced Boxwood Cottage and Home as their choice for Best in Show. Well done, it was really a beautiful Scarecrow! Congratulations to Boxwood for winning the $100 cash prize!
The top three winner's in our Community Choice Category will each receive a set of gift cards donated from local businesses. The votes were carefully counted twice to be certain, and in the Community Choice Category here are our top three winners:
#1 Boxwood Cottage and Home
#2 Harry Potter by Abb2
#3 Master Lockman's Black Belt Academy
Three honorable mentions will also each receive a Classic Pizza gift card! Congratulations to the Turner Family with their Dios de las Muertos display, the Dexter District Library with their lounging reader, and The Cedars of Dexter with Cedarella.
Some of these scarecrows are placed around downtown Dexter, keep an eye out! I'll email winners separately to coordinate prize pick-up later this week.
An extra special pecial thanks to the local businesses who contributed to the event and donated prizes!
