scarecrows and such...
I can hardly believe that we are this far into October already. Every year in our town, there is a Scarecrow Festival. It is one of those things that really marks autumn being here, with Halloween soon to follow.
Officially the festival starts today, but yesterday was set up day. We walked around last night when there were less crowds to get through.
It was rather dark, but there were some lovely glowing lights. And some of the "scarecrows" were pretty impressive:
(from a Twilight display...I ignored that fact because...well...look at this! amazing!)
(most of the animals on this one moved...way cool!)
It was a nice night, and a family tradition. Also a family tradition: NOT going to the carnival that is nearby for the festival. Johansons don't do carnivals. But we do take photos while driving by...
What autumn traditions do you have?
