r The autumn season and Halloween, in particular, bring a lot of colorful activities to our area. For the second year, Mapleton City has brought to us their Scarecrow Spectacular. The event staged at Mapleton City Park solicited businesses, organizations, and individuals to create amazing scarecrows. The opening day was Saturday, October 14, and early that morning approximately 30 scarecrows lined the edges of the park at the intersection of Main Street and Maple Street.

The scarecrow creations were entered in the event in five categories; Traditional, Scary, Original, Business, and Minor League (young people 15 years old and under. The opening day event included a “Giant Pumpkin” donated by Jaker’s with a contest to guess its weight and win the pumpkin. Free pumpkins were given out that were donated by Mapleton City, Jaker’s, and the Mapleton Cemetery. In the evening “Spooky Stories” were told around a campfire. The scarecrows were on display through Monday, October 23.

What a fun family oriented day in Mapleton. It is a real treat to see Mapleton City Recreational Department establishing the Halloween Scarecrow Spectacular as an annual tradition. Now we will be looking forward to the 2018 Scarecrow Spectacular.
