These festive figures can be decorated to look like the business owner, show off their fall spirit, or designed like a traditional scarecrow.

As part of the stroll, residents of Danville will be encouraged to discover all the creatively designed scarecrows while rediscovering and supporting local businesses. On completing the stroll, residents can share a photo of their favorite scarecrow on social media and tag the Town or visit the Danville website to vote for their favorite display.

Scarecrows will be entered into a competition for two different categories: “People’s Choice” and “Town Council” choice. Tag @livelocallydanville and @danvilleparksca on Instagram and use #ScarecrowStroll.
