Weekend events pack Alpharetta and surrounding areas.

Scarecrows, brews and antiques draw crowds



NORTH FULTON, Ga. – The weekend of Oct. 5 was a busy one for North Fulton. With the Scarecrow Harvest and Brew Moon festivals in Alpharetta alongside the Crabapple Fest in Milton, residents had plenty to do.

The eighth annual Scarecrow Harvest saw 127 scarecrows line Main Street and Cumming Street. Local schools used their creativity to make their scarecrows come to life.

“It was really cool,” said Kim Dodson, Alpharetta’s special events coordinator. “They did a great job.”

Jason Shane made a 7-foot-tall Lego scarecrow for King’s Ridge. Its head moves and eyes light up.

“It’s fun and I’ve never seen anyone do something like that,” Shane said.

The school winners received a gift card and the chance to play on inflatables during a recess.
