Scarecrows to Take Center Stage at Atlanta Botanical Garden This October

A cast of creepy characters will be cropping up around the Atlanta Botanical Garden in October, welcoming guests to crisp, cool autumn strolls.

Scarecrows in the Garden features more than 100 whimsical creations by area schools, artists, designers, families and businesses perched throughout the Southern Seasons Garden and Children's Garden October 4 - 30. The sometimes wild and wacky scarecrows compete for prizes in one of two divisions -- professional and non-professional - and visitors will delight in discovering their own personal favorites.

In addition, they're invited to enjoy family fun games and crafts on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m.- 4 p.m.

Finally, on Sunday, Oct. 23 Goblins in the Garden returns with its kids' costume runway, storytelling, crafts, pony rides and more from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. For more information, visit
