Scarecrows!

By Tim Hauserman

Every year Tahoe City shows it’s fall colors not only with its vibrant red maple trees lining the streets, and of course with the lovely October weather,  but with a host of scary scarecrows tucked into many corners along North Lake Blvd. The scarecrows are produced by local schoolchildren, artists and Tahoe City business people as a gift to the community. Be sure and wander around downtown and find your favorites. Here are a few of mine:

Haven’t had a chance to check out the scarecrows yet? A perfect time to do so is Halloween Night. On October 31st Tahoe City hosts the Downtown Trick or Treat. From 4-6 pm local businesses are dishing out the candy and the town is full of wandering Ice Monsters and goblins. Start the evening at Heritage Plaza (That’s next to the Syd’s Bagel scarecrow pictured above) and get a free bag to contain all the booty.
