Each year we host the Altavista Scarecrow Stroll. Businesses are invited to make their own scarecrows and post them up in front of their businesses or downtown for visitors and residents to vote on them. The event is a fun and family friendly way to celebrate fall in Altavista. The winner who earns the most votes wins $100!
Join us for a day of fall celebration in Altavista!
