KINGSTON, N.Y. -- They may be made out of straw but spooky, silly and stylish scarecrows came to life at Frog Alley Park.
The second annual Scarecrows at Frog Alley was held Saturday and featured scarecrows designed by local businesses and artists. Members of the community were also able to create and enter their own scarecrows for judging.
Prizes were given for best design, most original concept and most frightening creation.
Organizers say they hope to combine history with fun by drawing people in to the historic park for the festival.
"It's a whole community and family event. It's kind of bringing the family and combining history with a fun fall event and it traces back to the original stockade of Kingston. It's the very end of the stockade district of Kingston so it's a nice way to kind of combine history and bring people in and let people learn a little bit about a property that they pass every day and may not know anything about," said Haynes Llewellyn, Chairperson for Scarecrows at Frog Alley.
The event was sponsored by Friends of Historic Kingston in partnership with the Junior League of Kingston.
