By Ed Waggener
There may not be a queue at the Adair County Library at 307 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY, this morning, to be the first to register for the 2017 Squarecrow Contest. But we hope there is for what has proven to be a most perfect celebration for Downtown Columbia, KY. But we're hoping there will be.
The event since its inception has drawn thousands of visitors and Revisitors (with apologies to Knifley) in a manageable, local business friendly, low-to no cost to local governments, and has offered some of the most creative examples of folk art anywhere.
Each year, the number of exhibits has grown. Last year the Guide to 2016 Squarecrows listed 52 entries. To see just how high the bar is for artistic standards is, one can check our the list, which has links to photo(s) and some concise relevant details about each.
The event culminates with the awards presentations in two parts: 1) for the People's Choice, and 2) for the Judges' choice. Last year, the the People's Choice didn't make winners list from the Judges - but that just makes it more interesting. A sneak peek, if you don't remember - but we bet you do can be seen at 2016 Downtown Days Squarecrow Award Winners announced During Downtown Days, when the community provides a unrivalled fall festival.
Going through many of the links in this article, we could help but remember a favorite, one which made us chuckle and revisit over and over. We'd bet others have All Time Favorites, and might share their thoughts on the subject.
By the way: Downtown Days will be Fri & Sat, 13 & 14 Oct 2017.
Famous people, some destined to be more famous, visit Downtown Days, as this one is. It happened in 2013. See: When Matt Bevin showed up at Sonny's Crafts while running for the U.S. Senate nomination.
