Downtown Mystic Scarecrow Contest
Businesses of Downtown Mystic Business Association of the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce and Mystic Net Marketing are holding a scarecrow contest from October 9th, 2009 to November 6th, 2009. Everyone is welcome to vote. Voting is conducted online at www.mystictoday.com/vote
Historic Downtown Mystic is noted for its wonderful water views, but this season brings a touch of rural New England farmland to the streets. Several downtown businesses are offering their versions of the classic scarecrow. The scarecrow is iconic to the rural landscape and now, The Daniel Packer Inne, The Whalers Inn, Or-Gan-Ik, The Cooper Shoppe, Cee Cee’s of Mystic, Steamboat Inn, Mystic Gem Company, Northern Light Gems, Color Salon and Spa, Mystic Drawbridge Ice Cream, and Puritan & Genesta have put him on maritime streets.
This year marks the second year that the Historic Downtown Mystic Business Association of the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce and Mystic Net Marketing has held a contest determining the best straw-stuffed character. Wander through downtown and spot your favorite; scarecrows take on many forms along the Mystic River – from witches to chefs to spotted Holsteins – vote for your favorite at: http://mystictoday.com/vote
Voters have the opportunity not only to rank their favorite scarecrow but also a chance to win prizes from participating businesses on a Virtual Prize Wheel – from dinner at the Daniel Packer Inne to Mystic Dollars courtesy of the Chamber.
The winner of the scarecrow contest will receive the grand prize of a free six-month banner advertisement on www.mystictoday.com
This event is sponsored by the Downtown Mystic Business Association of the Greater Mystic Chamber of Commerce and Mystic Net Marketing.
