Currituck Kids is a 501(C)3 organization enhancing the educational experience of school-age children living in Currituck County. They do so much! In addition to helping children, they have so many FUN events in the community!
On October 15th, they had the First Annual Scarecrow Fest. It was an absolutely perfect fall day!
Scarecrow kits were purchased by various community organizations, businesses, and individuals. The scarecrows were put together and displayed for all to see, including a group of judges. The judges had their work cut out for them, for sure - there was no messing around when it came to creating these scarecrows! Once the awards were given, some of the scarecrows, at the option of the creators, were then auctioned off in order to raise additional funds. And I have to say, things got very interesting and competitive during the auction!
There were fun activities to keep the kids entertained throughout the day, including face painting, pumpkins to be painted, live music, hula hoops, hay diving :) and of course food.
