Scarecrow Hide & Seek contest aims to beautify Buena Vista

The 2019 contest winner for Most Kid Friendly – and Delightful went to Souled Out T-Shirts for its Star Wars scarecrows. Colorful, creative and fun, judges said.


Fall fun begins this week as all ages are invited to join in a Scarecrow Hide & Seek contest sponsored by the Town of Buena Vista Beautification Advisory Board.  

The board’s announced homes and businesses in the 81211 zip code are invited to create a scarecrow and give it a name.  

Those wishing to participate must register at  

Scarecrows need to be on display in yards or windows during the week of Oct. 26-31.  

The fun continues as seekers, who do not need to register, travel around collecting names of the numbered scarecrows on forms being distributed at various locations in town or on a plain piece of paper.  

Entries can be placed in a special box located in the Buena Vista Library or scanned and emailed to no later than Oct. 31.  

A drawing will take place to reward participants as well as the winner of the favorite scarecrow.
