Downtown Los Alamos Looks A Lot Like Halloween As LAAC Launches Annual Scarecrow Contest

Jack the Pumpkin King from the movie, ‘Nightmare before Christmas,’ pays a visit to Los Alamos. Jack joins the rest of the scarecrows created by community members and placed along Central Avenue that are taking part in  Saturday’s Los Alamos Arts Council’s annual scarecrow contest. The scarecrows will stay up through Oct. 26. During this time, the entries will be judged and prizes awarded. Photo by Kirsten Laskey/ladailypost.com
