Jann Mirkov, Executive Director with Main Street: Greeneville said, “We are having so much fun with this contest. Contestants have really taken the time and effort to make some incredible displays. We have several out of area entries that have set up this year making the view from my office window a true delight. People have called asking how to vote. I can tell you one thing the adults have had a grand time with this. We have almost doubled the number of entries this year so I think we are on to something. I can only imagine what our downtown would look like if there was a scarecrow at each of the 185+ properties within the district.
