“2nd Annual Squarecrows”


Many businesses, school, church, club, organizations or individuals participate in the  Squarecrow Contest held on the square in Columbia.

Squarecrows are made from scratch or bought, but dressed to represent a group or individual or to just be a really unique Squarecrow.  But mainly they’re just plain fun and to get the square in a festive spirit for Downtown Days and Treats on the Town

Squarecrows will be ready to be displayed by Friday, Sept. 30


Don't know what a Squarecrow is?
