Scarecrows in the Garden

October 1, 2014 - October 31, 2014


Scarecrows in the Garden, a scarecrow festival presented by Wave Broadband, is a fun month-long display of locally designed scarecrows throughout the month of October. Create a scarecrow with your family, organization or business, then visit the Garden in October to vote for your favorite submissions.
