“It turned out to be very enjoyable for the whole family,” Decker said. “I think our scarecrows represent the Pinkerton Academy marching band very well. I smile every time I drive by them, but I will say, they look a bit creepy from behind.”
All scarecrows are set to be taken down by Oct. 30 to keep them safe before Halloween officially arrives.
Brown said she is thrilled her scarecrow project has grown. People drive by all the time to see the scarecrows or take photos. Vans loaded with senior citizens from neighboring towns drive through Chester to view the displays.
“I never expected it to get this big,” she said. “Sometimes we can’t get in our driveway. But they always give me joy.”
