The results are in for the 14th annual Scarecrow Contest, co-sponsored by the Colchester Business Association and Colchester Parks and Recreation. The kick-off event was held on Oct. 19 on the Town Green, where children and adults had loads of fun checking out the scarecrows, dancing to Halloween music, and marching in a costume parade around the green. The activities were followed with refreshments, snacks and pizza.
