Everyone’s invited to come out to Historic Downtown Long Grove Saturday, October 14, 2017 to help build and dress your own scarecrow to be displayed along the streets of Long Grove. This event takes place on Towner Green. A $5 voluntary donation helps cover the costs of the materials and proceeds will benefit local food shelters.
The Historic Downtown Long Grove Business District will provide each guest a basic structure for their scarecrow, bales of straw, and building guidance. Participants are asked to provide “old” clothing, shoes, hats, gloves, and accessories to dress their scarecrow. All of the leftover clothing will be donated. The Scarecrows will be on display throughout the month of October and town visitors will have the opportunity to vote for their favorites.
