Hay? Yes, straw hay bales are scattered all around Queen Creek, Arizona businesses for you to find. As of October 17, 2020, when we went exploring, there were 49 hay bales to locate between October 5 through October 31, 2020. Ready to take on the #HayQC challenge?

The Challenge

Note the straw hay bales are all outside of the businesses which, makes it very simple to find them. The simple steps in this challenge include:

  • Take a selfie or photo
  • Post using the hashtag #HayQC
  • Visit the Queen Creek Recreation Annex with your photos to receive some candy

  1. What fun! We have scarecrows on our square in my hometown and yesterday we found a scarecrow trail in Jasper County, IN, but I’ve never heard of hay bales – I love it!

  2. How cuuute! I totally love this hay art! If I had a bale to decorate, I would probably make a skier! I just LOVE skiing! 🙂

  3. Your pictures brought a smile to my face. I love all the creative ideas and how dedicated you were to each pose. We don’t have hay bails paintings here but the city’s business decorates scarecrows. The kids and adults love it!

  4. This is such a fun activity. Very creative. I would love to see my town do something similar. The ideas are endless.
