2017 Scarecrows on Parade Winners

Every year the business owners along Clark Street and Diversey Parkway help to transform the neighborhood into a frighteningly fun shopping district. If you had the chance to visit Clark Street in Lincoln Park throughout the month of October you probably noticed spooky, funny, and creative scarecrows in storefront windows – a parade of Halloween spirit along the corridor.

Our scarecrows this year included Star Wars characters, Bridezilla, Elvis Presley, and so many more! Merchants put their best foot forward to craft some of the most creative Scarecrows on Parade yet!

Thank you to all the stores and restaurants that took the time to design, create, and display their scarecrows throughout the Halloween season! And thank you to all of the neighbors and friends of Clark Street that voted for their favorites in the three categories. Here are the 2017 winners (and runner ups):


Funniest Scarecrow

Spookiest Scarecrow

Most Creative Scarecrow

Critic’s Choice ‘Crow’
