New Providence Business is hosting the annual Scarecrow Contest, bringing a festive feel to our downtown!  The contest encourages New Providence residents, businesses, civic organizations, school groups, sports teams, and families to build the wildest, cleverest, funniest scarecrows they can imagine (within contest guidelines).  The scarecrows will be on display throughout the downtown to bring the community and businesses together, encourage walking, and provide a great opportunity to visit our fantastic stores and restaurants.

New this year – more prize categories!   Prizes will be given for the best  entry in each category:

  • Ages 14 and under
  • Ages 15 and over
  • Organizations/Schools
  • Businesses

The competition entries are open to only New Providence residents, businesses, and community organizations, but anyone can vote for their favorite.  Click here for contest registration form and details.

Downtown Trick or Treating will take place on Saturday, October 26, 2019.

See you there!
