The link above was created for the 2014 Scarecrow Contest. That page will give the rules, the application form and will be the place to vote for your favorites.

The Pendleton's Fall Harvest Festival visitors were welcomed last year to town with scarecrows greeting them along the entrances and mounted on lamp posts around the town square. Every Contest Entry creation had a sign with the name of the scarecrow and creator/sponsoring group. With this information, everyone was allowed to vote for the "People's Choice" award for their favorite scarecrow in four categories - business, group, individual, children. Winners received $25, a blue ribbon and bragging rights. Voting begins online the Wednesday before the festival and continues until 8 am on the morning of the festival, Saturday, October 18, 2014. Voting will be at the Information Booth during the festival. The festival begins at 10 am on the Village Green in Pendleton and the winners were announced at 5 pm.. We no longer recognize Honorable Mention but did the first year.

Thank you to Jo and Pete McConnell, organizers of the Scarecrow Contest and thank you to all those who participated. Please continue to scroll to see who the winners and honorable mentions are. Also, thank you to all the Fall Festival Committee Members and to all those who were recruited to help or donate items. This has proven to be a great event for our town. It is such fun to see so many smiling faces enjoying these wonderful scarecrows. Our Scarecrows are "spreading joy" through Pendleton and beyond. There are many more scarecrows around town besides the ones that were in the contest.

"I can't believe how much fun we've had in Pendleton with the scarecrows. Everyone's enthusiasm and hard work has been overwhelming. Please take a drive through town and you'll be amazed, too. With all the talk, I suspect next year will be even better!!! Thanks everyone!!!!" Jo McConnell 2012

2015 Fall Harvest Festival and Scarecrow Contest

The Fall Harvest Festival will be held on October 24 from 10 to 5 on the Village Green. Dates concerning the Scarecrow Contest will be announced closer to time.

Video of Pendleton Scarecrows with TJ Land and the Jolly Wingo Band - This is such fun to watch! Thank you, T.J. Land

I hope you will enjoy watching this fun video! I love to look at all the wonderful scarecrows from 2012 and can't wait to see what folks create for 2014.

I enjoyed creating this slideshow showing off our scarecrows in 2012 and really appreciate the help of T.J. Land. I hope to be able to create one this year and will do my best to make sure that happens.

A Book Full of Ideas For Creating Your Own Scarecrow - Just click the book to go to Amazon to read the reviews, purchase or browse around

I noticed that this book even had ideas for your Community Scarecrow Festivals and suggestions for the judging. Now, I think I may have to order one of these before next year. Of course, I feel like our community could probably write our own book of Scarecrows.

Be sure to take the time to read the reviews on this book. It really sounds great. Readers wrote that the instructions seemed easy to follow and there were even some Scarecrows that were easy enough for children to make.

Fox Carolina Comes To Pendleton, SC

We love it when our town gets on the news for good things and the Scarecrow Contest is such a good thing for our town. Fox Carolina came early one morning and we had fun showing them around our little town.

We certainly enjoyed Fox Carolina coming to Pendleton to see our Scarecrows - Click their van to go to the article about us on their website.

Thank You Jo and Pete!

When the Pendleton Leadership Foundation's Fall Harvest Festival Committee met in the spring to discuss the 2012 event, it was decided to discontinue the Bubba Bake Off and substitute with something different to enhance the event. The Fall Harvest Festival at one time had an Outhouse Race which was fun for awhile but there came a time to move on to something else and that is when the Bubba Bake Off began. The committee felt that it was once again time to move on to something new and exciting. Committee member Jo McConnell suggested a Scarecrow Contest. She had been to the Cornbread Festival held at her husband's hometown of South Pittsburg, Tennessee and was excited about their town's scarecrows. They had also seen some wonderful scarecrows while traveling throughout the state of Vermont. The committee was aware that other towns had Scarecrow Contests and Jo's excitement was very contagious as the committee agreed that they would give it a try. Jo met with Amber Barnes, Pendleton's Town Administrator, and came up with an entry form, rules, and suggestions for applicants. A notice was in the paper and personal contact was made with the businesses, schools, and organizations to promote this idea. Soon, everyone was talking about the Scarecrow Contest and making plans to create one of their own. The news of the Scarecrow Contest spread through Facebook, Churches, Emails, and Word of Mouth. It was not long until completed Entry Forms began showing up at Town Hall. Jo McConnell said "I would have been pleased if we had 20 entries the first year. I was shocked when we had over 50". Scarecrows had to be in place by 5 pm on October 9 and many were scurrying around at the last minute trying to get theirs completed on time. The results were absolutely breath taking. Pendleton is filled with an abundance of creative citizens and these scarecrows prove it. The Fall Harvest Festival Committee was extremely pleased with the festival and with these wonderful scarecrows that have added much to the community. Lou Robinson, event coordinator, said "It has been fun to watch families strolling around the square enjoying the Scarecrows, visiting our shops and dining in Pendleton".

Here are some more scarecrows to enjoy looking at and seeing what some other towns are doing. It is fun and useful to look at as many scarecrows as you can in preparation for your own entry. Hope these help.

      A Scarecrow Contest is so fun for the folks making them and for the people, like me, who get to look at all of them. The best thing is it's almost that time of the year again! Your photos are fantastic! Great job, OhMe!!

      I used to have one I made who sat in a chair on my patio, wearing glasses and reading a newspaper. He was dressed in jeans with suspenders and a newsprint shirt. That was back when I still worked at the paper, so I thought it was pretty cool. His name was Charlie, and he's been gone for a few years now! Scarecrows are just plain fun!

      @Lee Hansen: Oh I would love to see your creation. My friend, Jo, who organized this event for us in Pendleton got inspired after visiting her son in Vermont. She said that they were everywhere. Maybe I will just have to go visit Vermont.

      I do love harvest scarecrows so much. Looks like Pendleton's contest was lots of fun for the competitors and the visitors. In Brandon and South Burlington up here in Vermont there are similar festivals and scarecrow contests. I got inspired this year and created one of my own for the front yard.

      Pendleton is a community of full participation for sure and you all did it again with your scarecrows and I love that "Doc" was immortalized even...everyone is a winner in Pendleton...congratulations on LotD and your purple star! I just noticed that you have plenty of fun under the guestbook too with great tips, videos and even an entry form for the Pendleton Scarecrow Contest.

      Wow! What an absolutely fabulous lens! Congrats on your LOTD! Just awesome! In Jackson, NH, they have the "Return of the Pumpkin People" every year, and it's similar to your Scarecrow contest! Not quite as many entries, but it's a lot of fun to drive around to see the Pumpkin People scenes! :)

      This definitely deserved the LOTD award! These scarecrows are absolutely precious! Obvious that the Pendleton folks went all out and I'm sure it is a definite site to see! Well done and hats off! :)
