The winners of this year’s Edmonds Scarecrow Festival were recognized and honored at a Saturday morning reception held in the main exhibit area of the Edmonds Historical Museum. An annual event, the Edmonds Scarecrow Festival combines fun, creativity and community building as residents compete for the top prize in several different categories.

“This year we had 85 scarecrows entered,” said festival coordinator Dave Buelow. “The creativity was absolutely over the top, but best of all the level of community support far exceeded past years. Last year 850 citizens cast votes for the best scarecrows. The year 2250 voted!”

First-place winners in each category received a certificate and a family membership to the Museum.

Those honored are as follows:
