MILAN MAIN STREET is pleased to present the third annual SCARECROWS ON MAIN event.

Individuals, families, community groups, organizations, and businesses are invited to design and build a scarecrow that represents their business, organization, family or selves, imagination and artistic talents.


Each scarecrow will adorn the downtown for three weeks in October. We will share pictures of your scarecrow on the Milan Main Street Facebook page. Pictures of each scarecrow will be featured along with voting options, so that the community can vote for their favorite scarecrow. The scarecrow with the most votes will win a small trophy.

Registrants are responsible for installation and removal of their scarecrows.
