Bringing residents and business leaders together to celebrate autumn and the changing of the seasons, the annual Fall Into Autumn & Holiday Gift Giving Event takes place in September in Vermilion, Ohio. Vermilion businesses, organizations and individuals make and display scarecrows. The downtown businesses display their scarecrows outside of their businesses, while individuals and businesses outside the downtown area display their scarecrows in Exchange Park. Exchange Park is filled with a variety of unique and lovingly made scarecrows from businesses, organizations, and residents.
Residents and visitors to Vermilion have the opportunity to vote for their favorite scarecrow. Voting slips are available in local businesses. The winning scarecrow is announced at the final Third Thursday of the season.
