Chamber holding scarecrow contest

Special to Atmore News

Last year, the Atmore Area Chamber of Commerce held the inaugural Fall Window Decorating Contest. The Chamber is continuing the tradition this year with the Scarecrow Window Decorating Contest.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for all of Atmore to display our unique southern charm, with each window showcasing their best scarecrow display for onlookers and sharing what makes our community truly one of a kind,” Chamber executive director Anna Norton said. “Best of all, this contest is absolutely free for you to participate!”
The top three winners will receive $100, $50, and $25 Chamber Bucks, respectively. Winners will be announced October 24 at Williams Station Day and will also be posted on Facebook.
Out-of-town judges will judge the displays.
