Something to crow about at Arvada's scarecrow fest

25th annual Festival of Scarecrows in Olde Town


The 25th annual Festival of Scarecrows was held in Olde Town Square on Oct. 9, ringing in the fall with a host of autumnal activities including costume parades, pumpkin and zucchini weighing contests, a cone maze and a scarecrow contest. The event is organized by the Historic Olde Town Arvada Association and doubles as a charitable event for Ralston House.

Hope, Community and Connection won the scarecrow contest with their entry `Bob,' a nod to the late painter Bob Ross. The Poston Girls had the largest zucchini at 10.6 pounds, while Eziah Fluharty won the biggest pumpkin contest with his 67-pound entry.

Approximately 3,000 people attended the festival, which also featured local vendors and representatives from community groups such as the Arvada Gardeners club.
