Emma Krumbee’s Scarecrow Contest was another hit this year as many from Belle Plaine and the surrounding area participated in the annual kick-off and judging held Saturday, Sept. 7. The scarecrows will remain on display during the festival that runs through Oct. 27.

Carol Bartels of Belle Plaine entered a scarecrow for the first time this year and came home with a second-place finish in the adult humorous category.

“I guess I just got inspired,” Bartels said of her first outing.

“I probably will [enter next year] and more than one.”
