CRANFORD - The 12th Annual Scarecrow Stroll in Downtown Cranford is rapidly approaching.

Starting October 16 through October 31, head downtown to see the unique and crazy creations made by Cranford businesses, organizations, schools, and teams, as well as residents throughout the area.

Awards will be given to the following four groups: ages 14 and under, ages 15 and older, Cranford Schools/Organizations, and Cranford Businesses. Ballots will be mailed to all Cranford residents and will also be available at participating businesses, the Cranford Library, and Cranford Community Center. Completed ballots can be dropped off in the Scarecrow Stroll mailbox, located in the Eastman Plaza by the clock.

The Cranford DMC is aiming for at least 100 scarecrows to line the streets. If you would like to be a part of it, registration is open here.
