10th Annual Scarecrows on Parade
The scarecrow decorating contest was sponsored by Home Depot and hosted by the Palatine Beautification Commission in conjunction with the 2017 Rotary Oktoberfest. Any Palatine family, business, non-profit organization, school affiliate, sports affiliate, homeowners association, faith or civic group were invited to participate in this event.
Participants dropped off and completed the final touch-ups on their scarecrows at Slade Street and Brockway Street on Saturday, September 16, 2017. Scarecrows were judged and awards were given for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners for the best decorated scarecrows. A big thank you to our award sponsors; Photos Hot Dogs, Palatine Inn Restaurant and Elite Salon and Spa. All of the participating scarecrows will remain on display along the rail walk fence through October.
