Even though it doesn't feel like it with the heat, technically, fall is here and it's time to get in the spirit. 

One way to do get in the spirit of fall si joining the Scarecrow Light Pole Decorating Contest.

Entries will be accepted until 5 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 20, and decorations must be in place by Monday, Oct. 4.

Poles will be assigned by the Chamber of Commerce (special requests can be made, but not guaranteed). Judging is based on originality, materials, and space.

Those who enter may not decorate a pole higher than nine feet, use glue, packing tape, or permanently fasten anything to the light pole. The Chamber strongly urges to use painters tape, string, or zip ties. 

Winners will be announced via Chamber Coffee at 10 a.m. on Oct. 7, and the judging will be done by an anonymous panel. Decorations must be removed by Nov. 5. 

First place will receive $100 worth of Chamber Bucks, second place will receive $75 worth of Chamber Bucks, and third place will receive $50 worth of Chamber Bucks.
