Fall Fun In Camp Verde!

Here is an example of the small town fun and comradery we love about Camp Verde, AZ!  As part of the October Fort Verde Days celebration, a scarecrow contest was held by the businesses throughout the community! 
Here is a nice traditional scarecrow, with the addition of a sombrero!
I enjoyed the liquor store's cowboy holding a bottle of Jack Daniels!  I wonder how many people checked to see if the bottle held the real thing!
Here's Wilson kicking back at Fort Verde Suites!
This is Annie and Max, neighbor cattle ranchers.  Annie met Max when her cows strayed one day onto Max's ranch.  From that day on Annie and Max spent lots of time together.  Max has acquired a ring through Laid Back Jewelry and is popping the question!
Here's a handsome couple!
Here is a scarecrow going for a hike!  The museum is getting a new mural painted in its entryway.  It's interesting how the artist had pictures of what was to be painted on the wall in the location of where it would be painted into the mural.  The small paper pictures were just visual guides for the freehand painting of the larger items.  What a wonderful talent!  
This is an interesting scarecrow that garnered an honorable mention.  Voting was done by community members!
Here's a cool biker guy at Camp Verde Realty!
The Ace Hardware scarecrow turned out well.  He looks a bit like Santa! 
Great doctor scarecrow!  Very well done!
I enjoyed seeing the tire scarecrow.  Very clever!
All the businesses seemed to go all out! 
Here's a cute couple at the Thanks A Latte coffee shop!
Here is the scarecrow at Trails End R.V. Park, where we are staying.  One of the park residents put it together!
Great job road crew! 
What fun.....a river rat scarecrow!
There were several honorable mention scarecrows not pictured, but the contest winner overall was the Anasazi Veterinary Clinic for this scarecrow scene!
