The 11th Annual Scarecrow Festival will line the walking path on the north end of Stevensville starting Friday night.

The public is invited to vote on their favorite entry and the competition is intense among the creative figures. Also Friday night, the scarecrows will be illuminated during First Friday in Stevensville to help the crowds see them as darkness falls.

Winners will be announced Saturday.

First Friday events in Stevensville includes the late openings for stores and galleries, plus another Halloween-themed contest.

The Carved Pumpkin contest will be in Creamery Garden Park, across Main Street from Rocky Mountain Bank.

Bring your carved pumpkins in between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. The pumpkins will be lit and displayed between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. with winners in four age categories - three kids categories and one adult division.

Enjoy the evening in Stevi!
