Scarecrow Scavenger Hunt in Wilton

Wilton’s Scarecrow Festival begins on Friday, Oct. 20, and there is a new twist this year — a Scarecrow Scavenger Hunt.

Starting Friday afternoon, participants can find Scarecrow Scavenger Hunt forms (available on the town website at under News and Announcements), and start looking for items on select scarecrows around Wilton Center.

Record your findings and drop completed forms in the designated box at Lang’s Pharmacy (28 Center Street) or Wilton True Value Hardware (21 River Road) by 3 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 23. The prize drawing will be held that evening at the Board of Selectmen’s meeting.

The first three forms pulled from the box will win Wilton Chamber of Commerce gift certificates. All winners will be notified by email or phone. Participants/winners do not need to be present at the drawing.

The scavenger hunt is presented by the Wilton Chamber of Commerce, Trackside Teen Center, Wilton Parks and Recreation, and Wilton Department of Public Works.
