Halloween Town!!

Scarecrow Day logThe suburb’s biggest homage to scarecrow-making returns to Historic Downtown Long Grove.  DIY Scarecrow Day is an afternoon dedicated to harvesting charm and family fun.  Scarecrow engineers around the region are invited to amass in downtown Long Grove to build their own custom scarecrow modeled after whatever their hearts’ desire.  With a $5 voluntary donation per scarecrow, each set of builders will receive a wood base, a bale of hay, and building guidance.  Participants are asked to bring old clothing, shoes, hats, gloves, and accessories to dress their scarecrow (all leftovers will be donated).  Thereafter, all scarecrows are propped up throughout the village for the rest of the month adding a colorful backdrop for Halloween Town.
