First-place winner “Demeter and Eric with the Endless Neck.”
Rockland Scarecrow Days committee selected the winning custom-designed scarecrows created for the event: Riley School, first place, for “Demeter and Eric with the Endless Neck”; City of Rockland, second place, for “Stu Too”; and Chelsea Upham of Sea Maine Art, third place, for “Shellsea.” This was the second year of the promotion, designed to bring families to the downtown district, and the first year residents were invited to participate by displaying scarecrows in their neighborhoods. Scarecrows will remain on exhibit through Halloween. Anyone who would like to acquire a frame to build their own scarecrow may email Rockland Main Street at rocklanddowntown@gmail.com.
