Owensboro Christian Church has unveiled a new feature for this year's Light Up the Night event.  It's called Scarecrow Row and the church is looking for local businesses to create scarecrows for the big display.  And there are a couple of incentives for doing so.


Light Up the Night is a huge fall community event and Owensboro Christian Church is adding a new way for local businesses and civic organizations to be involved.  The church is challenging locals to show off their creative side by creating scarecrows!  According to a press release, "there are two benefits for entering the competition."

The first benefit is free advertising!  Your scarecrow and display will be seen by approximately 3,000 attendees.  The second benefit may be even better.  You could win CASH!  First place will win $250.  Second place will be awarded $175.  And third place will take home $75.

Participating businesses can set up their scarecrows on Friday, October 27th from 1pm to 5:30pm.  Tear down is set for later that night . . . from 8pm to 9pm.

Light Up the Night is Friday, October 27th from 6pm to 8pm and will feature scarecrows, a chili cook off and other seasonal activities.  The event takes place at the Owensboro Christian Church Mall Area and parking lot.
