Scarecrows invade Buchanan


Scarecrows are meant to keep pests away, but for one local city, they're doing anything but scaring.

Buchanan, Michigan has 140 scarecrows set up all around the city, all with different themes and looks. 

It's all part of a fundraiser for the Buchanan Art Center.  This is the 4th year the art center has done the fundraiser.  They had only 30 their first year, but the event has become so popular that now they have local businesses asking them if they can buy a scarecrow.

They've been up since September 1st and will stay through the end of October.
