I am sure you have noticed the scarecrows around the downtown area this year. They started to appear a couple weeks ago and are placed so you could make a loop walk and see them all. Monday, I took a walk and photographed all of them and they are pictured below. I was pleased at the detail of some of these.
I called Ramona Kidder of Dickerson Music, who is the organizer of these scarecrows. I asked her the reason why she had decided to take on this project, not just this year but last year as well. She said, “I wanted to have something fun to make people want to come down and walk around”. “A downtown thing” she said.
They are quite clever, and I suggest giving yourself time to walk around and while you are at it stop in and visit our merchants.
