Egg Harbor Café Scarecrow

Vote for Your Favorite Scarecrow in Annual Village of Barrington Contest

Local schools, businesses & organizations have been busy decorating scarecrows for weeks in the Village of Barrington’s 2018 Scarecrow Decorating Contest. Dozens of scarecrows are in the running for the top prize and voting is underway now.

This year, you’ll find some designs with a specific message like Egg Harbor Café’s call to “Save the Bees”, a reminder that their dishes incorporate locally sourced ingredients, including honey. Manager Taki Mullins says the beekeeper’s name is Eyeball, the scarecrow is Arthur and, this year, they’re in it to win it!

Others got creative with pumpkins and paint like the fifth graders at Roslyn Road Elementary School who created a Minion Masterpiece!
