Scarecrow Display

You may have already noticed, but this past weekend some creative folks in Danville have constructed some amazing scarecrow displays around the historic Hendricks County Courthouse Square in Danville. We will have more details about this year's display in a post later this week.

But this weekend would be a perfect time to grab a cup of coffee at Court House Grounds or meander over after brunch at the Bread Basket Cafe & Bakery to get yourself in the fall mood! These scarecrows will disappear before Halloween so don’t put it off too long.
