Field Day and Scarecrow Days in Montauk

The scarecrows in 2016, before the presidential election, included Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton with boxing gloves outside the Douglas Elliman office in Montauk. Jane Bimson

Montauk Youth’s annual field day will be held on Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. at Third House. The free event includes a bounce house, a tug of war, face painting, relay races, and live music by the 3B’s. Hot dogs, soup, chili, and snacks will be sold, and there will be a raffle to help offset the cost of the event. Those interested in volunteering have been asked to email

Feeling that Halloween spirit? Montauk Youth has begun Scarecrow Days, the group’s effort to decorate the hamlet for the spooky season. Individuals, businesses, and organizations interested in making a family-friendly scarecrow for display in the business district or the harbor area can pick up frames at John’s Drive-In or call 631-835-8684.

Prizes will be awarded to the top scarecrows on Wednesday. This year the event is sponsored by Town & Country Real Estate and Riverhead Building Supply.
