WOODSTOCK, GA (October 12, 2023)– With over 230 scarecrows now standing tall in Downtown Woodstock, the annual invasion has officially begun. Installations began on October 2, with community members working diligently on each of their displays to create the most impressive designs we’ve seen to date.
Scarecrows are created by various companies, non-profits, local sports teams, scout troops, and individuals within the community. Among the designs are traditional classics, as well as newer pop culture trends that Swifties will love; creative takes on your favorite Disney characters; and of course, a few Barbies and Kens mixed in as well. Visitors will even spot a giant dog, some Stranger Things, Alice in Wonderland, and whimsical fairies amongst the designs. Each and every display has its own unique take on the long-standing scarecrow tradition; the Woodstock community certainly outdid itself this year with their creations.
The Scarecrow Invasion will remain on display in Downtown Woodstock through the end of October. Visitors will find the displays located on Main Street just north of Arnold Mill Rd, in front of Rootstock and The Chambers, as well as throughout City Center Park and The Northside Hospital-Cherokee Amphitheater. As a free event, visitors are encouraged to take their time viewing the scarecrows, and return as often as they would like to see it all.
An extra fun way to engage families and children in particular is with the Scarecrow Scavenger Hunt, which includes ten clues to be found throughout the displays. Those interested can pick up the Scavenger Hunt from the Woodstock Visitors Center (8588 Main Street), open Monday through Saturday, 10am-5pm.
