Ashley Cook, the Director of Sales and Marketing with the Zanesville-Muskingum County Convention and Visitors Bureau, said that the scarecrow contest is meant to bring fall decorating fun to the community.

The scarecrows are due back to the Welcome Center by October 12th between 7:30 and 1:30P.M.. They will then be on display from the 16th to the 31st throughout the downtown.
