Scarcecrows haunt downtown streets

It’s Yelloween, the new local Halloween tradition, and downtown businesses are getting in the spirit by erecting a uniquely terrifying scarecrow in front of their shops.

The towering scarecrows are playful and somewhat dark and with 55 slated to go up 10 feet in the air, will create a definite “atmosphere” downtown, according to organizer Bob Swaney.

The scarecrows will be up until Nov. 1.

Poles can be purchased for $20 from Swaney or businesses can use their own. Contact Swaney for more information at 767-2461 or [email protected].
