Get ready for a stroll like never before!  You can find the scarecrows throughout downtown Cranford, in front of stores and in windows. It’s the 10th Annual Scarecrow Stroll!


One of our favorite Cranford Halloween events is back!

A can’t miss day or evening for Union County residents! Pick a few hours one day during the Scarecrow Stroll and enjoy Cranford! They’re located outside so no time limits. The quaint downtown offers all kinds of restaurants, ice cream, coffee, gift shops and a top notch children’s consignment store.


Plan to spend an hour or two and watch your kids delight at finding all the scarecrows. Scarecrows were built, created, and conceived by local businesses and organizations. You’ll be amazed at some of the creativity – in past years we saw Harry Potter, Ghostbusters, and Lego, hockey, Wizard of Oz and so many more! Scarecrows will be on display throughout all of Downtown Cranford. Ballots will be mailed to all Cranford homes and extra ballots available at Cranford Library, Community Center & participating businesses. Return your ballot to the mailbox in Eastman Plaza – with so many great ones to choose from don’t miss a chance to vote your favorite!

On October 27 join them for the nighttime stroll with music, glow sticks and fun activities!
