Scarecrow contest is back


Get ready, Blaine’s downtown is about to get a whole lot spookier. Blaine Chamber of Commerce is hosting its annual scarecrow contest and displays need to be up by Friday, October 15. 

Businesses will decorate their stores with hay bales, pumpkins and other fall festivities during the competition that runs until November 15. Blaine Chamber of Commerce will take photos of displays at the nearly 20 businesses that have decided to participate this year. A committee composed of chamber board members, visitor center volunteers and active community members will vote on the winner.

The chamber will also help businesses that don’t have a downtown store find a store if they want to participate. The chamber encourages those who want to register but haven’t already to contact the chamber as soon as possible.

The Northern Light will donate a 4-by-4-inch color ad to the winner.

For more information, call the visitor information center at 360/332-4544.
