Scarecrow Invasion

For the entire month of October, you can join us in our scarecrow invasion, happening at the Downtown Historic District. Enjoy live music, live scarecrows, and cornstalks! They’ll appear in and around town, wearing worn overalls and maybe dressed as your favorite character, like Elvis!
