WEST AKRON — Fun stuff took place at the F.A. Seiberling Nature Realm Oct. 20 as families enjoyed Scarecrow Day. Participants were provided with some supplies to make their own scarecrow and compete for prizes. Some of the finished scarecrows are pictured below as they are lined up for judging.

Shown at right are Chuck Jones and his children William, 9, and Lydia, 7, who were among those who took part.

Volunteer and human scarecrow John Irvine, of Cuyahoga Falls, welcomed guests to the Metro Parks, Serving Summit County event, as shown above.

The day also included awards for the best crow callers. Children also could enjoy face painting, storytelling and roasting marshmallows.

Scarecrows will be out in force in the coming days as communities celebrate Halloween with trick-or-treat activities. For details on area events, go to www.akron.com or see the Oct. 17 edition of the West Side Leader.
