Halloween Town

Fall for Long Grove this October

We know 2020 has put a wrinkle in event plans for every community. We have retooled our favorite fall Hometown Events to provide our visitors with a safe, but fun way to celebrate fall and Halloween with our downtown business community. With these necessary changes, we are still finalizing our plans. We ask that you check this page or follow us on Facebook for updates. (Please note: the photos featured on this page are from previous fall events without mask and social distancing restrictions.)

DIY Scarecrow Day
11am–6pm

Scarecrow Day log

The suburb’s biggest homage to scarecrow-making returns again to Historic Downtown Long Grove. Do It Yourself Scarecrow Day is an afternoon dedicated to harvesting charm and family fun.  Scarecrow engineers are invited to reserve a time to build their own custom scarecrow modeled after any character or idea they can create.  We encourage participants to plan ahead, gather clothing and accessories and register in advance. A $10 registration fee per scarecrow earns each group of builders a wood base, hay for stuffing, and building guidance from our team of volunteers.

**Masks are required, social distancing guidelines will be followed and cleaning of work stations will take place between groups. We thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Visit the DIY Scarecrow webpage for further details.
