The hunt is on! Stratford's Scarecrow Trail starts today

Add to favourites

Stratford district’s sensational Scarecrow Trail has kicked off from today and finishes Sunday 17 November 2019. 

You’re invited to jump on the trail with friends and family in tow to see how many scarecrows you can find. 

It’s a fun, free activity for everyone to do, with prizes up for grabs for those who play.  

Simply pick up a trail map from Stratford i-SITE, Stratford Library or Council’s Service Centre on Miranda Street. Fill out the form with as many scarecrows as you can find to be in to win prizes. Entry forms must be returned by 3pm Wednesday 20 November 2019.   

There are also prizes available for those who entered a scarecrow and these will be announced by Tuesday 12 November 2019.  

This is the third year the event has been run to coincide with the region’s garden festivals, and organisers have loved seeing how creative the community can be.

Director Community Services, Kate Whareaitu said, “This year we have received an increase in number of scarecrow entries, with 79 to find along the trail.” 

“The involvement from the community is amazing and we hope everyone enjoys getting out and about in our district as part of the trail.”
