The Historic Hills Scenic Byway 2020 Bale Trail is HERE!!  And just like last year, we are going to be working with local areas to construct fun art sculptures with hay, straw and corn stalk bales.  Businesses, community members and organizations will have the opportunity to collaborate with farmers along the byway to create a unique art structure of their choosing.

The primary portion of the art structure must be comprised of bales, but may incorporate non-bale items as accents.  Any size and shape of hay, straw or corn stalk bales may be used. Bales may be wrapped or unwrapped; round or square. Paint your art piece with animal friendly paints so the hay or corn stalks can be fed at a later time.  Miniature bale art structures will be encouraged in the communities that the Historic Hills Scenic Byway runs through, to bring continuity to the project and the byway.

Bale Trail Registration is OPEN

**Limited funds are available to help with the construction of the bales – but these are **first come, first serve** until funds are exhausted!**

Creation of the art structure must be completed by July 1, and on display until October 1, 2020. Your art will be viewed by a variety of Byway travelers!

The Bale Trail is a collaborative effort of the Historic Hills Scenic Byway Council and local communities.
