The Ad Hoc Beautification Committee is responsible for two seasonal contests annually: our Scarecrow Contest and Holiday Lighting Contest. Residents, Community Groups, Schools and Businesses all find ways to participate in creative and festive ways! For more information, please contact the First Selectman's Office at 860-870-3100 or send us an email!
This year, we're partnering with the Nellie McKnight Museum and Ellington Historical Society in conjunction with the Grand Reopening on October 17th.
Scarecrows are to be displayed on the Town Green (spots are first-come, first-served!) beginning October 1. In order to be eligible for a prize, you must complete an entry form (submit online below!) and submit a photo to Julia Connor in the First Selectman's Office; feel free to email her with any questions, as well.
We're also excited to introduce our Inaugural Pumpkin Contest! Entries, including carved and otherwise decorated, will be displayed outside the Nellie McKnight Museum; voting will take place at the Grand Opening.
