Annual Scarecrows-in-the-Park Festival


Although the weather was a little on the hot side, it did not dissuade the record crowd of almost 1000 people from attending the Dingman Township Parks and Recreation Commission's annual Scarecrows-in-the Park Festival.

The family-friendly festival had a number of games and events ranging from the ever popular "bouncy house"  to a mechanical bull where kids and adults could try their cowboy (or cowgirl) skills.

DJ Q and the Crew provided the music and if that was not enough,  Jeremy the Illusionist made the day magic.

The Dingman Township Parks and Recreation Commission wishes the thank the following for making the day an absolute success:
