Scranton Tomorrow: Downtown Scranton Scarecrow Scavenger Hunt Continues

As part of Scranton Tomorrow’s Fall into Downtown Campaign, businesses in Downtown Scranton, and beyond, are displaying scarecrows in planters and storefronts to Scare Up Some Business, through October 31.

As a seasonal twist to this year’s Scranton Scarecrow Display, we’ve added a Scavenger Hunt to the promotion, making it even more fun to shop, dine — and spot scarecrows — in the Electric City!
How to play:

  1. Click on the image of our trusty detective above, and you’ll find the weekly Scarecrow Scavenger Hunt clue on our Facebook page. New clues will be posted every Friday.
  2. Find the featured scarecrow at a participating business in Scranton. (Hint: for a list of participating businesses, click here).
  3. Snap a selfie with the scarecrow, and post it to your Facebook page. Tag Scranton Tomorrow and use #scrantonscarecrows. (One post per scarecrow, please).

That’s it! When you complete steps 1-3, your name will automatically be registered to win a prize pack. The scavenger hunt runs through October 31, giving you multiple chances to spot a scarecrow and enter!

To maximize your chance to win, play every week. The winner will be drawn at random on November 1.

Scranton Tomorrow Downtown Business Scarecrow Display

The Scranton Scarecrow Display is part of Scranton Tomorrow’s Fall Into Downtown Scranton campaign, designed to encourage everyone in the community to support local.

Participating businesses create scarecrows in keeping with the theme of their business, and use them as promotional tools to attract visitors to the Downtown.

This year, we’re adding a scavenger hunt (with prizes!). The activity will be designed to encourage people to visit as many participating businesses as possible. The more scarecrows they find, the greater their chances will be to win.

  • Register by Wednesday, August 11, and we’ll deliver a 6′ by 3′ wooden frame to your business on Monday, August 23. Click here to register. There is no fee to participate!
  • Let the creative juices flow! Design your scarecrow in keeping with the theme of your business.
  • Choose the best way to display your scarecrow in time for opening day (September 13). Scarecrows may be placed in a nearby planter during business hours, and in display windows after hours, or as temporary fixtures in window décors, day and night.
  • Encourage your customers to snap selfies and pics for social media using #scrantontomorrow #fallintodowntownscranton #scareupsomebusiness.
  • On November 1, your buddy goes into storage to make way for our big holiday campaign. (Details on that are coming soon!)
