[JULY 27, 2005] It's the "CAT's Meow," as
Contests, Advertising and Tours combined will
set the tone for the popular Railsplitter Festival. The fall
celebration comes to the Logan County Fairgrounds each year in
mid-September. Local businesses will host scarecrows in a window
contest sponsored by Main Street Lincoln and the Railsplitter
Contests include one for businesses and one for
children. Advertising -- displaying scarecrows, runs Sept. 1-19. And
the tours consist of fliers with maps of scarecrow locations.
Whether creating or viewing them, "The scarecrows will be fun for
all," Main Street Lincoln director Wanda Lee Rohlfs says.
Create a 3- to 5-foot scarecrow.
Register scarecrow at Main Street Lincoln.
Display scarecrow at a business (we can help) Sept. 1-19.
Judging scarecrows will take place Sept. 1-15 and selection will
