Downtown Toms River Scarecrow Walk

Join in the fun of our 3rd Annual Scarecrow Walk!

Cast your vote!

From October 16 - November 2, scarecrows will decorate the downtown and be vying for your vote. Washington and Main Streets will be lined with this cast of characters, so be sure to come down and help pick the winners by voting for your favorite.

Ballots will be available at participating restaurants with a poster in the window. Ballots will need to be dropped off at the Downtown Toms River BID office at 53 Main Street.

Voting and Judging:

Scarecrow judging will be done by popular vote beginning October 16. The public can only vote once. Ballots are not valid without your name, address and email address. Ballots will be available in participating businesses in Downtown Toms River. Just look for the Scarecrow Walk Poster. Ballots can be dropped off at ballot boxes located at the Downtown Toms River Business Improvement District Office, 53 Main St. Toms River and in the lobby of the Ocean County Library, Toms River Branch, 101 Washington Street.

Public voting takes place between October 16 - November 1, 2018.

Winners will be announced on Friday, November 2, 2018 on our website and FaceBook page.

All scarecrows must be picked up by Monday, November 5, 2018.
