Scarecrows on the Square - Downtown Paris, TN

Festival Event

Who knew that Paris, Tennessee was the hip, gathering place for scarecrows in West Tennessee? Stroll the historic, courthouse lawn where these friendly, harbingers of fall can be found watching traffic, posing for photos and obviously, scaring the crows.

These creative characters anxiously await your arrival and YOUR VOTE! Ballots available at participating downtown businesses.

It's not often that your family can enjoy shopping the friendly boutiques of Paris, have a delicious lunch downtown and top it off with a visit to the fabulous SCARECROWS ON THE SQUARE!

These friendly characters have been visiting for years, bringing a smile to the faces of everyone who loves a good old-fashioned, country scarecrow, or the fabulous updated versions. You may see scarecrows that look like storm troopers, ghosts, mad scientists, Disney characters and more. Many of them have shown up on FB posts around the country!

If they could talk, they'd be stumping for your vote in the Best Scarecrow Contest. Do them a favor and pick up a ballot at a participating downtown business. They'll be very appreciative, but you can't tell it by looking at them. They have a hard time expressing themselves!!
