From Sept. 29 through Oct. 31, an army of scarecrows invades the city of Eureka, marking the return of the annual Scarecrow Festival.
Colorful and artistic scarecrows pose in front of businesses, churches, schools and private homes. Can you find them all?
Venture down Fifth Street and Central Avenue, into the downtown area and to some of the city’s more popular areas to hunt down each uniquely crafted scarecrow. These scarecrows aren’t your typical hardware store accessory. Each one is a work of art created by a local business or organization. They’re made from various materials and wear an array of costumes. No two scarecrows are alike. In previous years, almost 200 scarecrows were set up across the city.
The 2019 invasion includes a wide array of related events, including drag racing at Brookedale Farms. Visit eurekascarecrowfestival.com for all the details.
