Scarecrow contest to decorate green

COVENTRY — Registration for the sixth annual Coventry scarecrow contest was extended until Friday at noon.

Business owners, local families and schools are invited to register, create their own scarecrow and enter their scarecrows in the contest.

All scarecrows will be put on display at the town green by Dunkin Donuts at 3516 Main St.

There will be no registration fee and first-place winners from each category will receive a prize.

“This is a great opportunity to get creative with family and friends, work on teamwork in the classroom or advertise your business,” a town press release reads.

Everyone will vote for their favorite scarecrows on the Coventry Parks and Recreation Facebook page.

To enter the contest visit or call 860-742-4068.
