    Scarecrow Stroll

    In 2009, Altavista On Track sponsored the First Annual Scarecrow Stroll. This event takes place in October and invites local civic organizations, churches, businesses and families to participate in creating a scarecrow to adorn the streets. In its first year, we welcomed nearly 40 scarecrows to Downtown Altavista. Visitors came from near and far to stroll downtown and see the unique sights! All are welcome to join in the fun, show their creativity and maybe win a prize! Voting for the 2017 Scarecrow Stroll will take place during the month of October. Make sure you vote at area retailers - the lucky winner will receive a cash prize of $100!
