CAPE MAY — Hundreds of votes were cast this year in the ninth annual Scarecrow Alley contest sponsored by the Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities.
The Emlen Physick Estate, 1048 Washington St., was the setting for 19 scarecrows created by members of the community and displayed throughout the grounds in October. MAC provided some of the materials, and visitors voted for their favorites in various categories.
