CRANFORD, NJ - More than 100 scarecrows will be displayed throughout Downtown Cranford to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Scarecrow Stroll.
The stroll begins Tuesday, Oct. 24 and will include special activities, like the Nighttime Stroll on Friday, Oct. 27 with music, treats and more. Additionally, there will be a “Scarecrow Selfie” spot in Post Office Plaza.
“Of course, there wouldn’t be a Scarecrow Stroll without the residents, business owners, clubs, schools and organizations who create these fabulous displays every year,” Kathleen Miller-Prunty, downtown director, said. “We are always impressed by their imagination and 2017 will be no exception.”
The scarecrows will be on display until Nov. 5. Residents are encouraged to vote for their favorites using a ballot from a participating business. Once filled out, the ballots can be dropped at the bright orange scarecrow mailbox in Eastman Plaza.
“We are very grateful to Della Vecchia Financial Group, Dreyer Farms, Ivy Rehab, Jim and Julie Murphy, Tammie Costello for Real Estate at Coldwell Banker East and Tina Browning of Boroughs to Burbs at Coldwell Banker East for their generous support,” Miller-Prunty said.
The stroll takes place from Oct. 24 to Nov. 5. The Nighttime Stroll will begin at 6 p.m. on Oct. 27 at Eastman Clock. Scarecrow Stroll tote bags will be distributed while supplies last.
