Gig Harbor created an attention grabber for the annual Scarecrow Festival on October 5th, a scarecrow in firefighter gear, putting out a witch’s cauldron. Through social networking the team sent reminders to the public about the event. Gig Harbor won first prize in the People’s Choice Award for nonprofits. The award will help to pay for a Sparky the Fire Dog  costume.
