Mapleton City will present its first ever Scarecrow Spectacular Contest on Saturday, Oct. 15. Residents are invited to show off their scarecrow-making skills, with the city providing the posts. Individuals, families, businesses or organizations can participate and compete for prizes.
Decorating and set-up will take place on Oct. 15 at the Mapleton City Park, located at the corner of Main and Maple streets, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Judging and viewing will be from 3 to 5 p.m. that day.
Creations should remain appropriate for family viewing and fall into one of five categories: Traditional, Scary, Original, Business and Minor League (children up to age 15).
Food trucks will be on hand with treats for sale. The scarecrows will remain on display through the end of October. For more information, call Parks and Recreation at 801-806-9114.
