'Tis the season for ghosts, goblins and things that go bump in the night. The merchants on Clark St. are getting in the spirit with a public art exhibit Scarecrows on Parade that is sure to provide haunting fun along Clark St. between Armitage and Diversey, and Diversey from Orchard to Lakeview kicking off Saturday, October 12 through Thursday, October 31, 2013.
Dozens of local merchants will flaunt their creativity to begin the festive autumn season by designing and displaying a themed scarecrow in front of their business. After viewing all of the Scarecrows on Parade, the public is invited to vote for their favorite at Visit Clark Street.
Voters will automatically be entered for a chance to win more than $800 in prizes. Voting ends at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, October 25, and winners will be announced at the annual Clark Street Spooktacular on October 26.
