Back To Front Page


This Halloween season Chesterton businesses put on their creative hats and had fun with their First Annual Scarecrow Contest. Their challenge was to have the scarecrow represent something about their business. Sixteen businesses displayed scarecrows in front of their buildings or in their windows. Competitors were Butler Winery, Duneland Chamber of Commerce, Villa Nova Pizzeria, Chelle's, Green Garage, Joe's Towing, Hair's the Thing, East Wind Studios, Red Cup Cafe & Deli, Riley's Railhouse, Port Drive-In, Running Vines Winery, Tria Boutique, Chesterton Toys, Flying Mermaids, and Volstead. Scarecrows were out from October 23 to 31 and the public was asked to vote.

"People throughout town commented on how festive and fun it was seeing the scarecrows. One lady and her granddaughter took their picture with all 16," said business owner Machelle Wagner, "All of my employees participated in building the scarecrows for our shops."

Receiving over 300 ballots the competition was fierce, with first through third separated by only 10 votes. Winning First Place was Joe's Towing Minions, Second Place was Hair's the Thing Beauty-Crow, and Third was newcomer Volsteadís Mad Hatter. The contest was organized by the Duneland Business Initiative Group (DBIG).
