Scarecrows on Parade 2017
Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo is proud to present our 10th Annual Scarecrow Competition!
The Zoo invites area art classes, schools, scouts and classrooms to build a scarecrow! The Zoo provides you with the materials needed to build a scarecrow, and you provide the design elements & creativity. Scarecrows are showcased on Zoo grounds from October 16 through 31. Guests will vote on their favorites at Boo at the Zoo on Sunday, October 29, 2017.
