Jann Mirkov, Executive Director with Main Street: Greeneville said, “We have delighted in the fact that through the years this event brings more and more locals and visitors into downtown Greeneville to view and enjoy the displays. The arts and creativity are alive and well here. I have the best view from my office window watching adults placing children into the displays in order to capture just the right fall photo. That is an added bonus to the contest. Thank you to our contest sponsor, Broyles General Store, the businesses, groups, and individuals who help us enjoy autumn. Come see the scarecrows, pick your favorites, and vote at https://forms.gle/zF2noiV5Y1o3yuC86.”
