2023 Scarecrow Stroll & Contest!
This fall downtown Mackinaw City transforms into a charming scarecrow gallery, featuring handcrafted scarecrow creations that are sure to tickle your imagination. The Scarecrow Stroll promises a delightful experience for all ages and brings a touch of harvest magic to our streets.
Wander through our downtown and admire an array of creative scarecrows throughout the month of October, each one uniquely designed by local businesses, community groups, and organizations. From traditional to quirky, you’ll find scarecrows that truly showcase the spirit of the season and represent our unique businesses.
While in town, take this opportunity to explore the boutique shops, eateries, and local attractions that call our community home. Discover unique treasures, early holiday gifts, and one-of-a-kind finds. A scarecrow locator map will be made available online and printed versions can be found at “Scarecrow Row” at Mystery Town USA.
The contest will run from September 30 – October 31. The winning Scarecrow and voter will be announced via our Facebook page on November 2nd.
Be sure to cast your vote for your favorite scarecrow creation using the QR Code you’ll find on posters and scarecrows around town! The scarecrow with the most votes will be awarded the coveted People’s Choice plaque and have “Best Scarecrow” bragging rights for a year.
One lucky voter will be drawn to receive $25 in MAC CA$H to be used at participating merchants in Mackinaw City.
An interactive scarecrow locator map and list of participating scarecrows is coming soon!
