MARIETTA – Registration is now open for the City of Marietta's Parks and Recreation Department’s 13th Annual Scarecrows in the Square contest. Please remember each group or organization must register by September 26, 2018 to decorate a Scarecrow on the Square by displaying your group, business or school's creativity and personality via a scarecrow!
Registration forms are available online for the public scarecrow contest. Entries will be judged on originality, construction and presentation. Creators are urged to use a theme and name that showcases the business or group's personality or celebrates Marietta's history with a historic figure.
