Scarecrows usher in Fall into St. Michaels
A scarecrow smiles from a utility pole in front of the St. Michaels Post Office on Friday, Oct. 13. Fall into St. Michaels festivities started this weekend with a townwide scarecrow contest on Saturday. Participating area businesses sponsored the scarecrows, with prizes offered for Traditional, whimsical or humorous. There also is the coveted People’s Choice Award, where visitors can vote online for their favorite scarecrow. The People’s Choice Winner will be announced on Monday and can be seen on the “Visit St. Michaels” Facebook page. Next weekend, Fall into St. Michaels will go into full swing with the annual Pumpkin Carving Contest, Pumpkin Pie Competition, St. Michaels Museum guided town tours, annual food drive for the needy and Jack Russell Terrier Races.
