Dixon’s Scarecrow Fest a hit

Dressed as witches, line dancers with the Dixon Country Line Dancers group perform Saturday, Oct. 21, 2023 in downtown Dixon during Scarecrow Fest.

Hundreds of people and not a crow in sight, Dixon’s Scarecrow Fest was clearly a hit.

The Oct. 21 festival was blessed with warm, sunny weather and big crowds that moved throughout the downtown are checking out booths of food, crafts and fun activities.

A local line-dancing group provided entertainment, as many dressed in witches garb and stepped in unison to music. Food vendors provided delicious snacks, and kids got to enjoy a petting zoo.

As per usual for the season, many visitors dressed in costume to add to the fun.
