In the months of September and October, the Huntsville Botanical Garden puts those scarecrows front and center for Festifall! From September through October, the Huntsville Botanical Garden hosts lots of creative scarecrows submitted by different organizations in the city. They are always a joy to see and really great for a selfie or two! You should also check out these other parts to the “FestiFall at HBG.” Learn more at their website. 

What to expect at the Huntsville Botanical Garden Scarecrow Trail

Suitable for all ages, some creations are just for the sheer fun of it, and some are a little spooky.  Some even allow you to get right in the scene – don’t forget your camera! – and the displays in October are the perfect setting for a family photo!
