The Nisswa Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Scarecrow Decorating Contest, including a creation by Mike Hatrick - "Captain Leaf Raker III, aka Eddy Vanleaf Rocker" - which is just one of several scarecrows outside the chamber building on Main Street.

Anyone can build a scarecrow, and people are encouraged to stop by to vote for a favorite.

Hatrick's scarecrow was put near the gazebo on Main Street just before the legendary rocker Eddie Van Halen died Oct. 6 at age 65 of cancer.
