RULES
Trick or Treat at Werewolf Creek is intended to be a family friendly event. Scarecrows should be whimsical, humorous, mischievous, or lovable – NOT frightening. Monsters, gruesome, bloody or especially scary entries will be removed. We also ask that entries not contain any adult, political, or religious references. The City of College Station Parks and Recreation Department retains the right to remove any scarecrow deemed to be distasteful or not family friendly.

CONSTRUCTION
Scarecrows must be durable enough to sustain the entirety of the event, so please consider fall weather. Please use care in choosing your materials. We recommend a 2x4 ft. piece of lumbar for the central body and a broomstick or like item for the extremities. Each entry is permitted only ONE scarecrow. Feel free to use additional props such as straw bales, corn shucks, etc. If you choose to bring perishable items such as pumpkins or other gourds, they must be whole and not punctured or carved. All entries must be hand-made, original constructions. No commercial costumes, rubber masks, plastic masks, etc. will be allowed. Each scarecrow must be self-supportive. College Station staff will assist with the placement location, but all set-up must be completed by the entrant.

SIZE
Each scarecrow must fit within a 3x3 ft. area (footprint). Scarecrows are required to be at least 4 ft. tall and no larger than 6 ft.

SET-UP/PICK-UP
Scarecrow set-up will take place from 10 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 30. All scarecrows must be on display no later than 2 p.m. All scarecrows must remain set-up until the event concludes at 9 p.m. All scarecrows must be pick-up between 9 and 10:30 p.m. Leftover scarecrows can not be held and will be discarded after 10:30 p.m.
