A Fireman Scarecrow? A Scientist Scarecrow? A Chef Scarecrow?
What kind of Scarecrow would you like to make?


It's Bellport Village's Annual
Children's Scarecrow Workshop and Contest!


 

Joanne Specht, a wonderful graphic artist by trade, is one of the nicest and most creative people you’ll ever meet. Along with her family, Joanne is a real asset to Bellport.

Several years ago, Joanne came up with the idea to hold a scarecrow contest in Bellport. This wasn’t to be just any old scarecrow contest. Instead, it was going to be a unique scarecrow building workshop for families. The scarecrows would be displayed on Main Street and a contest would be held to see which family came up with the best design.

Joanne approached the Village for permission to hold the workshop on the “Village Green” in front of the Community Center and to hang the finished scarecrows on Main Street. Permission was granted and it's been a successful event ever since!

This year, the weather was wonderful, the selection of building materials was great, and the volunteers were there to give a lending hand and instruction with all things scarecrow!

Scarecrow Contest2010 Workshop

For the third year in a row, the annual Scarecrow Workshop and Contest was a success! Thanks to Joanne Specht and many tireless volunteers, everything went as smooth as could be. The weather was once again perfect and there were plenty of materials available to make each scarecrow truly a “one of a kind.” Watch the video below for scenes from the workshop and the finished scarecrows on display.
