Finally, don’t be alarmed if you swing by the Westlake Recreation center and see figures in the night guarding the front entrance. They are members of our 4th annual Scarecrow Contest. This year 16 entries will try to scare you or just make you laugh. These scarecrows will be vying for Most Creative, Most Original and Most Scary. These creatures may also find their way to the Haunted Trick or Treat Trail so be aware of your surroundings and have a great Fall season!!!!!
