Something to crow about: Holiday contest winners named

The City of Troy announced the winners of its 2020 Downtown Scarecrow Decorating Contest Wednesday afternoon.

Leigh Anne Windham, City of Troy, congratulated the winners and expressed appreciation to all downtown merchants who participated and to the many who voted on their favorite scarecrows.

The three “scary-crows” that received the most votes were, Confetti Crate, first place; Studio 80 Salon, second place; and Landmark Realty, third place.

However, all the scarecrows were winners in the friendly competition among downtown merchants.

“The Scarecrow Decorating Contest was a lot of fun and generated a lot of interest and it brought a lot of people downtown,” Windham said. “And, those were the reasons for the contest.

“Because of the limitations and restrictions of COVID-19, we have not been able to do a lot of the fun things downtown that we would normally have done. So, all along, we have done some little things to bring people downtown and have fun.”

Windham said downtown Troy is the place to be any time and all the time.

“We have a great downtown. We invite everyone to visit downtown Troy and see what all it has to offer.”
