Local businesses enthusiastically participated in this year’s annual Scarecrow contest hosted by the Buena Vista Beautification board.

The 22 creative displays enjoyed good weather while bringing many smiles to town, said beautification board member Nancy Taylor.

Additional ambience was provided by a donation of straw bales from Mini Blessings.

Children were invited to vote for favorites in four categories and drop ballots off at the BV Library.

The winning Scarecrows include:

Funniest - Chaffee County High School,

Scariest - Vista Auto Parts,

Fan Favorite - Valley Wide Health Services and

Most Creative - tie.

BV Shell/Stedman’s and
