Scarecrows in Middletown

Ben Long, 8, looks at a scarecrow dressed as the Morton Salt girl during the 15th Annual Scarecrow Contest in Middletown on Saturday. Scarecrows created by community members and local businesses lined Main Street for the event, which was hosted by the Middletown Arts and Activities Council.

Erin Swann and her 9-year-old son, Jack Swann, knew they were up against a field of wildly creative scarecrow designs. But the Middletown mother-son duo was confident.

“I put it as the first one,” Jack said, pointing to his ballot to vote in the 15th annual Middletown Scarecrow Contest. He voted for his family’s creation.
