Fun on the Square features local talents
Posted: Wednesday, October 8, 2008 9:11 pm
While the official opening ceremony for the Hatchie Fall Fest in Brownsville does not occur for another week, the Haywood County Master Gardeners got a jump on things with its Annual Scarecrow Contest and Fun on the Square.
The event will begin at 3 p.m. on the lawn of the Haywood County Courthouse.
New this year, the event will feature a free concert by students of the Kincaid/Gooch Studio and other local talents. Hot dog concessions will be available along with homemade ice cream. This will also be an opportunity for attendees to purchase their 2008 Hatchie Fall Fest T-shirts at a pre-festival discount.
Participants in the Scarecrow Contest will have until 5 p.m. Saturday to erect and make final preparations to their entries. Judging will be in three categories — adult, children and “Most Creative.” After the judging, the scarecrows will remain on the courthouse lawn and cash and gift prizes will be awarded to the winners during the Hatchie Fall Fest Oct. 18.
An award will also be given for “People’s Choice” and will go to the scarecrow with the most popular vote. Attendees at both Fun on the Square and the Hatchie Fall Fest will have an opportunity to cast their vote for this award.
