I love that every year the Charles County Chamber of Commerce hosts a scarecrow decorating contest. It’s so much fun to walk around down town to look at all the creative and fun creations. Displays are stationed at various different light poles through out the town of  La Plata; most of the scarecrows are on: Route 6, St. Mary’s Ave, Centennial St, and La Grange Ave. The scarecrows are usually setup a few days before the Fall Festival which was October 9th 2016 this year and will stay up until Halloween.  Some are a little creepy, while others are humorous. My boys favorites are the Pokemon themed setup located on the corner of St. Mary’s and Centennial and the Superhero themed display at the Port Tobacco Players on Route 6. Attached in this article is a scavenger hunt so you can have fun finding them all. It’s fun to buy some Halloween themed stickers to place on the spots as you find the scarecrows.
