Scarecrows on Parade in downtown Cherry Valley

Driving through the village of Cherry Valley is very interesting at this time of year thanks to “Scarecrows on Parade”, a project sponsored by the Friends of the Cherry Valley Public Library. Nearly 50 scarecrows have been “adopted” by local businesses, organizations, families, school groups, scouts, and individuals. The scarecrows are then dressed, decorated, and displayed on lamp posts up and down E. State Street and Mill Road in Cherry Valley.    

Scarecrow viewers are encouraged to vote for their favorite scarecrows at $1 per vote. Voters may vote as many times as they wish at the Cherry Valley Public Library or other selected Cherry Valley businesses. Winners will be announced at the village’s Halloween parade on October 29. Crow about Cherry Valley and enjoy this festive fall tradition.
