A victory party may be the next big event in Hoschton’s quest for a new world record.
Organizers of the Hoschton Scarecrow Stampede announced Tuesday that the city has documented proof of 5,441 scarecrows — well exceeding Hoschton’s goal of 4,000 of the stuffed creations.
The city is vying for a Guinness World Record for the “Most Scarecrows in One Location.” The standing world record was set in 2003 in Ohio with 3,311 scarecrows.
After countless hours of documenting the scarecrows with photos and video, Hoschton is sending its entry to London for Guinness to decide if the city has a new world record. An official announcement is expected in November.
“If they tell us we’ve broken the world record, we’ll have a party,” said Robbie Bettis, one of the organizers.
