Huntsville Scarecrows Set the Stage for Halloween

Huntsville scarecrow - Martinson & Beason, P.C.This Halloween, we encourage you to experience one of the area’s best holiday displays.

Throughout the month of October, the Huntsville Botanical Garden will be filled with a variety of scarecrows, from dragons to Sesame Street characters. This is the perfect opportunity for the entire family to marvel at decorations and get in the spirit of Halloween!

The garden’s Scarecrow Trail is included in admission to the Huntsville Botanical Garden. Admission costs twelve dollars for adults; ten dollars for seniors, students, and military personnel; and eight dollars for children twelve and under. Members of the garden and children two and under get in free.

You can see the Scarecrow Trail until the end of this month.

In addition to the Scarecrow Trail, the garden will play host to Bootanica, a fun, family-friendly event. It will include hay rides, hula hoop contests, pumpkin painting, and other exciting activities for kids. Bootanica will also feature a parade of costumes, worn by both people and their pets! Bootanica is set to take place on Saturday, October 26 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Children’s Garden.
