Scarecrow creations make fall fun
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.
