The Fall theme is evident in downtown Vidalia with businesses, schools, and individuals decorating the street corners with scarecrows as part of the annual Scarecrows ‘Round Downtown Competition.

In this contest, participants craft unique scarecrows that are judged by Downtown Vidalia Association (DVA) judges and online by the public to determine a winner. Most of these scarecrows reflect the trades of the businesses or the missions of the organizations that set them up; for example, Vidalia Federal Savings created a bank teller scarecrow, the Sassy Sisters Dance Studio display features four dancers in various poses, and The Therapy Tree creation is a scene of scarecrows “fishing for autism awareness.” The public is invited downtown to see the scarecrows in person, but they may also be viewed online on the DVA’s

Facebook page.

Many other celebrations for the Fall season are scheduled throughout the area. The Downtown Vidalia Association will host the Downtown Spooktacular Trick-or-Treating event for ages 12 and under at 5:30-7 p.m. on Thursday, October 28. The City of Lyons will offer downtown Trick-or-Treating through the Lyons Main Street Scare on the Square event on Saturday, October 30, from 6-8 p.m.
