WHAT’S WITH ALL THE SCARECROWS?

The 1st Annual Scarecrow Trail's goal is to encourage kids and families to get back in touch with the outdoors. We hope that this will begin a new tradition in Brownsville.  We hope the trail will grow each year, and that everyone will enjoy scarecrows created by businesses, families and organizations. 

GIVE BACK WITH A SCARECROW 

Each scarecrow represents a desire to get children unplugged and back in nature. By entering a scarecrow, you help maintain Dean Porter Park, a 27-acre park, a place where our community can enjoy more green time and less screen time.

BE SEEN BY THE RGV

Last year, our Movie In the Patch  was attended by more than 3,000 kids and families from in and around Brownsville and the lower RGV.   This isn't counting the number of people that  shared via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. 

Make your ‘crow an awesome display that shares your message and represents your business, organization or family, while encouraging folks to get outside and enjoy nature! You must provide a placard with your info logo or name to identify your participation. Your "Scare Crew"  will be recognized on our site and social media.
