We are Fulwood wants residents, businesses and community groups to create scarecrows ‘of all shapes and sizes’ for the festival, with a registration deadline of 18 October.
In a Facebook post, We are Fulwood said: “Join in the half-term fun and follow the trail of spectacular scarecrows around Fulwood.
“Grab your trail map and a pen and make your way through Fulwood to see if you can spot some of your favourite Halloween scarecrows.”

The event will include a prize draw for participants who complete the map, first, second, and third-place prizes for the best scarecrow, and a raffle.
We are Fulwood said: “The scarecrows need to be family-friendly and Halloween themed. They can be on their own or within a scene – it is entirely up to you! Go as big or as small as you like.”
Scarecrows must be in position from 23 to 31 October, with an entry fee of £5 for scarecrows, £2 for a map and raffle ticket, or £1 for separate raffle tickets.
