Scarecrow Contest Background:
In collaboration with the LA Chamber of Commerce, Los Alamos Arts Council brings a bit of frightful autumn fun to downtown Los Alamos every year by sponsoring the annual Scarecrow Contest. Since 2001, scarecrows made by local businesses, clubs, organizations, schools, families, and individuals have graced the streetlights along Central Avenue during the week before Halloween. The registration fee is $10, and we award prizes to the scarecrows for their creativity and seasonal spirit.
