We know there’s another election going on, but the Edmonds Historical Museum reminds us that the really important one is getting down to the wire — and your vote is critical.
If you haven’t made your choice in the Edmonds Annual Scarecrow Festival, now is the time. This Friday is the cutoff date, so there’s not a moment to lose.
Voting is easy.
Just go to the Edmonds Scarecrow Festival voting page, where you’ll find photos and description of all this year’s entries. A simple mouse click is all it takes to make your choice for the best scarecrow in each of six categories: Residential, Food and Beverage Providers, Retail Businesses, Service Providers, Financial/Insurance/Real Estate, and Government/Art/School/Civic Organizations.
Winners will be revealed at the Edmonds Historical Museum’s annual Heritage Days banquet and fundraiser this Saturday in the Edmonds Holy Rosary parish hall. Featuring great food from Shooby Doo catering, lots of tempting auction items, a wine grab and dessert dash, and keynote speaker Glenn Farley of KING-TV, Heritage Days promises to be the must-attend highlight of the season. A few tickets are still available, but they’re going fast. Purchase tickets at the Edmonds Historical Museum website, www.historicedmonds.org, or call or email Museum Director Katie Kelly at 425-774-0900, firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, all first-, second- and third-place winners from all six categories will be officially recognized at the 2016 Edmonds Scarecrow Festival awards reception on Monday Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. at the Edmonds Historical Museum, 118 Fifth Ave. N. The public is invited, so mark your calendars and come join the fun.
