Scarecrows will soon adorn lampposts in Wilton Center as close to 40 businesses, individuals, organizations and families have stepped up to take part in the Wilton Chamber of Commerce Scarecrow Fest. After a one-year hiatus, Chamber officials reintroduced the program after several people spoke up online to say they wanted to see the scarecrows hang in Wilton once more.

Wilton Parks & Recreation grounds crew will be hanging the scarecrows starting today, Friday, Oct. 14, and they’ll be up through Monday, Oct. 31. Be sure to find GOOD Morning Wilton‘s guy, “G.M. Wilton,” and snap a picture or selfie with him. Be sure to tag him with the hashtag, #I❤️GoodMorningWilton on Instagram and Facebook, we’ll have contest details on Monday!
