The Framingham Centre Common Cultural District issued this press release to SOURCE media.


FRAMINGHAM – The Framingham Centre Common Cultural District (FCCCD) is excited to announce a new fall event, Scarecrows on the Centre Common! Framingham residents, businesses, and organizations are encouraged to build and decorate a scarecrow at home, then bring it down to the Centre Common to display it from October 9 until November 1.

“While we are limited in how we can hold events this fall, the FCCCD wanted to encourage people to visit the Common – a great place for social distancing – as well as our local businesses. We hope everyone will enjoy making and displaying their scarecrows. Once they are up, we invite you to come down and see all the creative displays” said Annie Murphy, chair of the board of directors of the Framingham Centre Common Cultural District.

Due to current gathering limitations, please sign up for set-up and removal times on our website, And to keep this a safe, fun event, there are a few requirements for the design of scarecrows: no hay, no pumpkins or other perishable materials, and no staking into the ground. Get creative! Give your scarecrow a break and set it in a chair or bucket! Just be sure it is secure and will not blow into the roadway. We look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with!

Established in January as the 49th cultural district in Massachusetts, the Framingham Centre Common Cultural District is an independent non-profit dedicated to promoting and enhancing the valuable assets at the Centre Common. These include the many cultural, religious, and educational intuitions as well as the many small businesses that call the Centre Common home.
