It’s unfair that Americans pay the highest prescription drug prices in the world! Tell Congress to stop Rx greed and cut drug prices now.    

Scarecrows In The Gardens

Friday, Oct 25, 2019 at 8:00am

Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park
3540 Thomasville Road
Tallahassee, FL 32309

Come out and enjoy Maclay Gardens during the month of October where you will find scarecrows greeting you along the walkways. Local businesses, non-profit organizations and youth groups build scarecrows to display in the gardens. This is a fun Autumn event that puts you in the spirit of harvest time. Visitors to the park, during the month of October, can vote for their favorite scarecrow to win the People's Choice Award! On Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays starting October 9th and ending November 1st, there will be ranger led hayrides that take you through the gardens where rangers will tell the story behind each scarecrow. Hayrides run from 5pm to 6:30pm. NO HAYRIDES will be offered during our Moon Over Maclay Event held on October 13th. If you, or your organization would like to build a scarecrow to add to this event, visit
