Registration ends today for those who want to submit a scarecrow for display at Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium.
The Scarecrow Alley Contest coincides with the annual Zoo Boo event, which will be held Saturday and Sunday. The event includes Halloween-decorated grounds with special pumpkin treats for many of the animals.
Rules for entry are fairly simple. Homemade scarecrows must be turned in by Friday and built to withstand weather. They must be on a 1 ½-inch square post, in good taste and not reflect social or political views.
Zoo visitors will cast their ballots throughout the weekend. Winners will be given tickets to Zoolights or Northwest Trek Wildlife Park.
