Scarecrows on the Mall!
Many years ago, merchants of the Washington Street Mall would set up and decorate themed scarecrows throughout the Mall for the autumn season. This year, the Washington Street Mall Business Improvement District brought back the tradition! Among the Mall’s already famous fall décor, unique scarecrows now line the Mall, creating a picturesque and fun autumn atmosphere.
The District also made it a contest. Businesses were invited to pick a lamppost or other location on the Mall and create and decorate a scarecrow as they wanted. Sixteen different businesses participated and a wide variety of unique scarecrows were created. Deputy Mayor Lorraine Baldwin and City Councilman Shaine Meier of the City of Cape May were judges and picked the top three scarecrows.
First Place: Whale’s Tale – Mermaid
Second Place: It’s A Breeze – Mr. Crabby
Third Place: Fins Bar & Grille – Fisherman
All of our merchant’s scarecrows embrace the fun atmosphere of fall on the Mall!
We invite you to visit the heart of Cape May this season and discover the beauty and character of Cape May in the fall. Our unique boutiques, shops, fine dining restaurants, bars, quick eats, activities, and services are waiting for you, all among picturesque fall décor.
