Are you ready to join the tradition of building a scarecrow for the annual Bates Nut Farm Scarecrow contest? You or your group can start your own fall tradition. Your scarecrow can be any theme you like—traditional, scary, a movie character, even your favorite teacher! Each entry will receive a free jack-o-lantern pumpkin and a certificate of participation. Your scarecrow will be on display in the Pumpkin Patch thru 10/31/18. All winning scarecrows become the property of Bates Nut Farm and will be added to the Farm’s famous scarecrow collection. Bring your scarecrow and completed registration form to the pumpkin patch from 1-5 p.m. on Oct. 12 or before 10 a .m. on Oct. 13. Cash prizes and gift certificates will be awarded to the top entries in each category. Entry forms are available online or at the Bates office. All of the Pumpkin Patch festivities will continue throughout the weekend including the tractor hayrides, straw maze, pony rides, and food. Admission is free. $5 parking on Oct. weekends.
