Scarecrow Regulations & Agreement
Build your scarecrow to be freestanding; easily carried by two people, and weigh less than 80 lbs. Scarecrows will be dropped off in front of the Ashton Gardens Visitors center where our Gardens Staff will be setting up your scarecrow. Thanksgiving Point will provide stakes that have been placed in pre-selected locations. Your scarecrow should be ready to go at the drop off so our staff can mount it with no problems. Please remember you will not be able to set your scarecrow up at it's location - our staff will do that for you. If you have further questions about this, please contact Signature Experiences.
