The 2013 Pendleton Scarecrow Contest
The 2013 Pendleton Scarecrow Contest was a huge success with over 2,000 votes cast for your favorite scarecrow in each of 4 categories: Business, Group, Individual and Children. Once again, the folks of Pendleton have done an amazing job on these creative scarecrows and they are all winners. The Scarecrows welcomed everyone to our Fall Harvest Festival on October 5 on the Village Green and remained in place until November 9, 2013. We estimate that there were close to 200 scarecrows around town.The talent in our town is absolutely amazing. Each scarecrow is so very unique with it's own personality. I personally love each and everyone of them and love the creative names, too! Wonderful Entries! After 2 days of online voting and voting at the festival, winners were announced at 4 pm on Oct 5 at the Fall Harvest Festival. Congratulations to all the winners and all the scarecrows! 2014 will be the 225th anniversary of the Town of Pendleton and there will be lots of activities planned throughout the year. I feel sure the Scarecrows will have to return again next year for the big event.Children (made by the children)- 7 entries - WINNER: LaFrance Elementary - Colorful CarlIndividual - 11 entries - WINNER: Jo & Pete McConnell - Dancing With The Stars - Pendleton StyleOrganizations/Groups - 21 entries - WINNER: Pendleton Elementary - We Are PESBusiness - 33 entries - WINNER: TD BankEnjoy seeing all the scarecrows entries below or come visit us in Pendleton.Thank you and hope you enjoy the scarecrows and enjoyed the 15th Annual Fall Harvest Festival and Historic Downtown Scavenger Hunt.We have also tried to include photos of other scarecrows that were not in the contest.

Jo McConnell, Pendleton Scarecrow Contest Director, says:
There is no entry fee for our Scarecrow Contest because it is not a Fund Maker, it is a FUN Maker!
Tell us what you think of all of these scarecrows. We would love to hear from you.
