Connecticut's Beardsley Zoo is proud to present its 10th Annual Scarecrow Competition!

Area art classes, scouts, schools and classrooms are all invited to take part in Scarecrows on Parade 2017, a creative and fun fall contest for everyone to enjoy. The zoo provides you with a Styrofoam pumpkin and the PVC frame, your group provides the artistry and design, teamwork and hilarity. 

Scarecrows are on display at the zoo from October 16-31. Guests at Boo at the Zoo on Sunday, October 29 will vote for their favorites. The scarecrow with the most Best in Show votes will receive a group pizza party at the zoo and be featured on the zoo's website and Facebook page. All participating classrooms will receive complimentary children's admission to the zoo so that the kids can see their scarecrow on display.
