Scarecrow contest winners announced

Nov 2, 2021

The Wareham Village Association has announced the winners of its annual scarecrow contest.

Coming in first place is the businesslike scarecrow created by the Ready Kiernan & McNally Law Firm at 267 Main St. The scarecrow, wearing a suit, looks ready for a day of work. He has an iced coffee from Dunkin in one hand, a surgical mask and pen in one pocket, and a Lawyer’s Weekly newspaper in the other. His briefcase rests at his feet.

In second place is the ghoulish barber in the window at Walter’s Barber Shop at 1 West Central Ave. in Onset. The barber has a serious look on his face as he runs his hands through the bushy hair of a zombie-like figure with claw-like hands. 

Coming in third is the Wareham Fire Department’s scarecrow, located in front of the Main Street fire station. The uniformed scarecrow is ready for action, with a firehose coiled at his feet and draped over one shoulder. His pumpkin face grins at passersby.
