Jackson Alexander, 7, came along the Forest Park Historical Society Bike Tour of the Scarecrow Invasion in town. He has been collecting photos posing in front of every display and took advantage of the group ride to check off a few more. With over a dozen cyclists, Amy Binns Calvey, volunteer tour guide, led the group up and down the streets just south of 290 and then south of Roosevelt. Compelling cup heads, botanists, Alebrije inspired art, zombies and ravens popped up all over town and once again this talented town did not disappoint. Popular inspiration came from Day of the Dead, Pirates and A Nightmare Before Christmas and video games. With108 scarecrows at 76 locations, Forest Parkers have given the invasion a strong second year, even two Scarecrows that crossed Harlem to invade south Oak Park.
