Friday is fast approaching and the construction crews are putting the finishing touches on their scarecrow creations for Stevensville's Scarecrow Festival.

Friday, October 4, the Cut-off Road between Stevensville and US 93 will be lined scarecrows like this one from a year ago.

The annual Stevensville Scarecrow Festival is sponsored this year by the Stevensville Main Street Association. The business group will run the First Friday event, including "Living Statues" on the downtown sidewalk bump-outs. There are cash prizes, too.

The living statues will only be on display for a few hours Friday night only, but the line of scarecrows will be up for about a week, unless the weather doesn't cooperate.
