2017 Scarecrows-in-the-Park

For the first full day of Autumn, the weather was near perfect.  Sunny and warm, the bright blue sky make the perfect backdrop for the 2017 Scarecrows-in-the-Park Festival.

CharlieBrown, Snoopy and Woodstock - This Year's Grand Prize Winner

The annual festival, a product of the Dingman Township Recreation and Parks Commission is an event with a little something for everyone.  Children relished the games such as the toilet paper toss, putting for prizes, and the "scarecrow bowling" as well as the face painting and petting zoo - and of course, the free pumpkins!  Those with a few more years under their belt could enjoy the scarecrow judging, Jazzercise demonstration, and live music provided by Olivia Zinn and the Coalition.

Although several hundred people attended, the laid back approach had families coming and going throughout the day so that crowding was not an issue.


Children loved the petting zoo and family-fun games like the toilet paper toss.

The Dingman Township Parks and Recreation Commission would like to thank all those who made the festival a success!
