Fort Kent Scarecrow Festival updated their status.
When this happens, it's usually because the owner only shared it with a small group of people, changed who can see it or it's been deleted.

What fun! Thank you all who participated in our game for this weekend. We hope you've enjoyed our game.

It is amazing how many businesses there are in the Greater Fort Kent area - and some quite unique ones at that! And we weren't even able to hit them all (can you imagine - we did this for four days - we would be doing this for two weeks at least if we hit them all!) How lucky we are to have such hard-working dedicated people to work in our communities and businesses and patrons to support these businesses and keep our local economy in check.

We look forward to having our businesses parade you next year for Scarecrow Festival/UMFK Homecoming rather than have you parade the businesses on Facebook. We hope you join us next year for our 2021 Scarecrow Festival/UMFK Homecoming weekend. Like this page to stay updated on dates and future events.

Our last picture for this game: This past week, The Dude stopped in for some bling - decided on this ring and was shown this antique cash register on display which rings - kaching. What fun! Where can you get the ring with the bling and here kaching?
