Mark you calendars for the 6th Annual Hackettstown Scarecrow Contest!
HKTWN BID businesses will be displaying Scarecrows around town, taking inspiration from diverse characters, creepy and cute alike!
This year the BID again invites visitors and residents to take a Scarecrow Selfie! The BID will create a Facebook photo album where everyone can vote for his or her favorite—one like per person per photo entry. The selfie with the most likes will win $25 in BID Bucks to spend at any business in Hackettstown!’
THEME: Villains– Participating businesses may chose a villain from any movie they wish. This includes Disney and cartoons. 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!

10/26 – Judging deadline
10/31 – Winner announced on WRNJ
11/9 – Scarecrows can begin to be removed by businesses
