Scarecrow Days and Street Painting at Montauk’s Fall Festival

Field Day was AMAZING! Thank you so much for all who volunteered their time and efforts, all who donated food and prizes, all who came out to enjoy the festivities, to CCOM for providing cooking staff and taking on the costs of the bounce houses and band, and to Jack Perna for being such a great sport as this year’s pie throw recipient! It is my favorite event of the year – the feeling of community and the smiles on our kids faces make everyone’s efforts well worth it! I can’t say enough thank yous…thank you, thank you, thank you….

Now on to other Montauk Youth activities…..

*MONTAUK’S SCARECROW DAYS* have started. We have handed out a good number of frames and locations, and are ready to take on more than ever this year. Pick up your frames at CinemaCycle at the Montauk Movie, or call me (668-1540) and we’ll be sure to set you up. We’d love for your scarecrow to go up for this weekend’s Fall Festival activities, but have no fear…this is a Montauk casual event. Put your scarecrow up when you can. Part of the fun is seeing new scarecrows pop up around town each day. Judging will take place at the end of this month. This event is FREE and all are welcome to participate!!

*STREET PAINTING AT MONTAUK’S FALL FESTIVAL* this Sunday, October 13 in downtown Montauk. We tried this event out last year on the Sunday of Fall Festival on what we thought would be a limited basis and the participation was amazing. Find our tent on Main Street beginning at 10am, pick up a pack of pastels and a 5′ x 5′ square of concrete assignment, and create away. Again, this is a Montauk casual event – it’s FREE, and what you create is up to you! Be sure to look for your photos on our Facebook group after the event.

Thanks again for the continued support of all of our programs and events, and kudos to all of the volunteers who are making them the success that they are!
