The life-size creations, from the witty and whimsical to the bold and bizarre, are designed by metro area residents, artists, designers, businesses, schools, and organizations. Participants compete for prizes in one of two design categories: professional and nonprofessional.
On Thursday evenings, visitors can check out the scarecrows under the glare of flashlights (which they are encouraged to bring) during Fest-of-Ale. Each week from 5-10 p.m. the beer fest features a variety of fine specialty ales and live musical entertainment. During the final night of Fest-of-Ale, October 25, some of Atlanta’s top chefs will square off for the fourth annual Great Chefs of Atlanta Pumpkin-Carving Contest.
For youngsters, harvest-themed activities will be on tap on weekends from 10 a.m.-4 p.m., and on Sunday, October 28th they can don their favorite costumes for a day of treats and activities during Goblins in the Garden from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. It will include a storytelling, the Ride-On Train and a cash bar for Mom and Dad Goblins.Of course, Macaroni Kid had to get in on the fun!
