Register for one or more of the following categories:

  • NEW! Sci-Fi: Think of this galaxy, whether you’re flying on the Death Star or exploring the USS Enterprise, think Star Wars, Star Trek, and your favorite Science Fiction subjects.
  • NEW! Thrills with Chills: Think outside the mask by creating a scarecrow that scares. You’re only limited by your darkest nightmares.
  • Group: Make your scarecrow a group project—school, church, office, club, scout troop, community, etc. Put on your thinking caps and conjure up a winner! Great project for schools or camps!
  • Quite the Character: Create a scarecrow interpretation of your favorite book, television or movie character—human, animal or animated!
  • Traditional/Whirligig: A “whirligig” is an object that spins. Pay homage to the scarecrows that have been “scaring crows” from farmers’ fields for centuries in this category. You may choose to add parts that move or make noise when the wind blows to make it a true whirligig scarecrow.
  • Kids Only! Scarecrow, Sponsored by Giggleberry Fair: This category is for our 12 and under guests. Choose your favorite Disney Channel star, Nickelodeon star or Cartoon character and have your child create a scarecrow that he or she would love!
