The year 2020 has been pretty crazy. What started out in March with a two-week shutdown of non-essential businesses turned into over six months of phased re-opening. Tons of events concerts, fairs and more have been cancelled. We still do not have indoor dining approved in New Jersey – it’s October!
As a result, Halloween events this year will have to be safe and socially-distanced. There is a lot of creativity out there and here’s a trending activity that is family-friendly, festive and fun – a Scarecrow Decorating Contest!
Here’s some Scarecrow decorating ideas to help with your own neighborhood contest.
There’s even a quick 60-second video that you can check out. Enjoy, good luck and Happy Halloween!
Here in Sussex County, New Jersey, we have some beautiful and idyllic rural towns. Branchville is on the short list, for sure! This year, they’re hosting another contest, poised to be bigger and better than those in the past. Since I’m no longer decorating the office for Halloween, I thought I would take a stroll down Main Street to check out the creations.
Ready to visit Branchville? Here’s a few places you might want to check out in and around town:
- AG Pizza & Restaurant
- Riveria Maya Restaurant
- Skylands Stadium
- Space Farms Zoo and Museum
- Stokes State Forest
In addition, there are a bunch of farm stands, U-Pick Pumpkins and U-Pick Apples. There is also the Culver’s Lake Flea Market open on the weekends.
Enjoy your visit and good luck with your Scarecrow Decorating!
