Minions Disguised As Scarecrows Are Spotted On Central

Minions evolved from single-celled yellow organisms at the dawn of time are spotted this morning disguised as scarecrows on Central Avenue. In collaboration with the Mainstreet and Creative District Office, Los Alamos Arts Council brings a bit of autumn fun to downtown Los Alamos with the annual Scarecrow Contest. Scarecrows created by local businesses, clubs, organizations, schools, families and individuals are gracing the walkway lamps along Central Avenue through Nov. 1. Community members are invited to start voting for ‘Fan Favorite’ at Fuller Lodge Art Center, participating businesses or online. The winning entry in ‘Fan Favorite’ and four others, will each receive Chamber Checks — sponsored by Los Alamos MainStreet and the Creative District — and redeemable at dozens of local businesses. Official Judges from multiple local organizations will be looking at all Scarecrows, and giving points for originality, creativity, construction and theme. Photo by John McHale/
