Project Jericho, a nationally acclaimed outreach program based at Clark State Community College, has partnered with National Trail Parks and Recreation District to bring Project Scare-A-Crow to downtown Springfield. Twelve scarecrows resembling beloved Disney characters will magically appear on the City Plaza on October 17, 2014, and remain on display through October 24, 2014.
The community is encouraged to vote for their favorite scarecrow by dropping donations into the voting box located at the corner of Main and Fountain. All proceeds benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank.
Project Scare-A-Crow ends with a finale event, “One Enchanted Evening,” on October 24, 2014, at the Veterans Park Amphitheater and features Cinderella and Prince Charming with their horse and carriage, a children’s costume contest, free hot dogs and the animated movie, Cinderella.
Free carriage rides are available between 6:30 and 8 p.m., and contest winners will be announced at 7:30 p.m. The public is encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets.
Project Jericho is a collaborative program of the Clark State Performing Arts Center and Job & Family Services of Clark County with additional funding provided by the Ohio Arts Council and The Turner Foundation. For more information about Project Jericho, visit www.project-jericho.com
