Thursday, Meadows Farms 7 Corners, located in Falls Church, Virginia, posted photos in a tweet featuring their new Caps tribute: a 20-foot tall Stanley Cup scarecrow.
Paul and Cesar of the garden center spent about two months building the scarecrow, which is made from plywood, PVC, emergency blankets, and lots of contact cement.
“Every year our company has a scarecrow contest for the stores that have Fall Festivals and we usually do something scary like Pennywise or something along those lines,” Paul said in an interview. “We are all huge Caps fans here and when they won the Cup, we decided right then that we had to make a Stanley Cup scarecrow. We started it at the beginning of July and worked on it periodically throughout the summer. Once late August hit we worked on it daily for about two to three weeks and just finished up last week.”
Paul also sent us progress pictures of the giant Cup being built, as well as a video of the Cup being installed via crane Thursday morning.
