One of the most popular “squarecrows” was back in her downtown spot on the square Thursday, just in time for Halloween. The scarecrow was slightly worse for her kidnapping experience, but flopped happily in her boyfriend’s arms. Local artist Fox Gradin, whose Celestial Studio overlooks the square on Main Street, made the “mercrow” to compete in downtown Gainesville’s Halloween squarecrow contest.
