W_-_Girl_Scout-_Scarecrow_copyAlachua Girl Scout Troop 1893 created their “zombie” for Scarecrow Row on behalf of the Alachua Lions Club.

ALACHUA – Visitors to Alachua’s downtown area are in for a seasonal treat as both sides of Main Street are decked out in Halloween thrills and chills.  With the spooky holiday less than a week away, the city’s Scarecrow Row is bringing smiles and chuckles to passersby.  This year’s theme, which is “Characters of the Good Life Community,” has been incorporated into a number of the scarecrows adorning lampposts lining the street.  Scenes of horror and humor as well as familiar favorites can be spotted clustered under the lights.

Sponsored by the Alachua Chamber of Commerce and Alachua businesses, the annual ritual is a prelude to Trick-or-Treat on Main Street, which occurs on Wednesday, Oct. 31 from 6 – 8 p.m.  In the space of those few hours on Halloween, Main Street will be flooded with pint-sized goblins dressed in every imaginable costume, seeking sweet treats from Main Street merchants who will be handing out candy.  In addition to the carnival atmosphere and “good spirits” that are certain to pervade the event, a costume contest will be held with prizes awarded in various age categories.
