Although the Flushing Harvest Festival won’t be held this year, the Flushing Area Chamber of Commerce is spreading some autumn cheer with its annual scarecrow contest.

From now until Halloween, residents can check out rows of colorful and quirky scarecrows that are up for display on lampposts in downtown Flushing. Each scarecrow has been created and sponsored by local businesses and non-profits.

The Chamber has also added lamppost and window decoration contests for local businesses this fall.

To see more pictures of contest entries, visit the Flushing View Facebook page. The Chamber will be posting contest results on its website, flushingchamber.com. B.G.
