We have an entry in the City Centre Business Association's annual Scarecrow Building Contest!
Come on down and take a photo with our scarecrow, or simply vote for us on Facebook! You can win a gift card prize bundle valued at $125 each if you vote and a chance to win a $200 prize pack if you take a photo with the scarecrow!
The theme is Superheroes and Supervillians, so we created SuperOwl!
