It's Scary Season

Scarecrows and skeletons help celebrate Halloween holiday

Where but downtown Northville can a skeleton be seen proposing to his lady-love, playing his guitar or skateboarding down the sidewalk? In downtown Plymouth or Wayne, visitors can view scarecrows fixing broken sinks, riding skeleton horses and training puppies among the straw-based creations on display. These annual displays of creativity draw crowds to the communities to admire, and maybe shiver a little, at the imaginations and artistry of their neighbors and local businesses. In Northville, more than 120 life-sized themed Skeletons - created by Begonia Brothers of Northville - come to town for the month of October, while in Plymouth there are more than 100 scarecrows in Kellogg Park. Wayne Ripple Effect displays scarecrows throughout the city and encourages the public to vote for their favorite on the Facebook page. Displays usually remain in place throughout the month of October to help celebrate the holiday.
