Last Saturday, October 24th was all that you could hope a fall day to be.  It was crisp and cool, but sunny – the perfect day for a gathering of autumn devotees and trick or treaters at the Ewing Green Team’s 2nd Annual Scarecrow Contest and the Township Recreation Department’s annual Trunk or Treat event.

Thirteen scarecrows showcased the creative and recycling talents of Ewing’s cub scouts and girl scouts, high school students, seniors, and area residents. We had Zombies, a Scare (i.e. bar)-tender, Madam Von Gotcha, an Aloha Grandma, a Cowboy, Scarecrow Gothic entries and more.

The judges, consisting of township officials and members of the Arts Commission, had their work cut out for them, they were all so creative and unique.  However, the decision had to be made and in a very close event the winners were:

  • 1st Place – Aloha Grandma – $100
    By the Ewing High School Class of 2017
  • 2nd Place – Linda – $50
    By Khiya and Cora
  • 3rd Place – Scare tender – $25

Check the photos for details of our entries.   We’re  hoping that you’ll all be back for more creative fun next year!
