Hackettstown BID Businesses

HOW IT WORKS:  HBID businesses wishing to participate will create a scarecrow to be displayed outside their store. The Hackettstown BID must be notified by the participating businesses no later than October 4, 2021.  Scarecrows need to be in place by October 8.  Scarecrows must be removed by November 11.


BE CREATIVE AND HAVE FUN.  Every scarecrow must contain the basic characteristics of a traditional scarecrow, which include stuffing or hay that protrudes out of the hands, head, feet, and neck.  It cannot just be a mannequin in a costume!
