On Saturday, September 29, Nauvoo will host the second annual Scarecrow Festival. Over twenty-five scarecrows will be on display along the Mulholland Street business district. Awards will be given to the top 3 entries during the Scarecrow Stroll held on October 6. Following the stroll event, the scarecrows will remain on display through the annual “Boo-ti-ful” Nauvoo Pumpkin Walk, which will be held on October 27, 2018.
A new feature this year will be a "Photo Frame" opportunity to have memories captured using your cell phone or camera.
The second annual Scarecrow Festival is sponsored by the Nauvoo Betterment Association, a group dedicated to promoting and encouraging improvements to the quality of life in Nauvoo.
