Fall Scarecrow Making
D.C. area members are invited to join FSYF in Arlington, VA on Saturday, October 22 to make a front-yard Halloween strawman.
Bring a pair of blue jeans, a long sleeve button-up shirt, and a pair of pantyhose or tights. FSYF will provide the straw to stuff inside and safety pins to connect the pants and shirt. This hands-on event is fun for all ages, but younger children will need parental assistance.
It takes place at the Arlington Forest Shopping Center (4813 1st St N, Arlington VA 22203) on Arlington Blvd/Route 50 a half-mile west of FSI. Meet in the open-air courtyard where families will spread out to build their strawmen. If it rains, the event will proceed in the covered portico.
Arrive anytime between 1 and 3 pm. Cost is $5 per scarecrow (pay in cash at the event). Pre-registration is required so FSYF can buy adequate supplies.
