The 36th Annual Scarecrow Festival is Friday, Oct. 8 thru Sunday, Oct. 10. This award-winning event features many unique handcrafted scarecrows on display throughout downtown St. Charles. Scarecrow Festival visitors can vote in the Scarecrow contest to help decide the winners in four categories: mechanical/mega, clubs, non-profits and schools, individuals and business. This event also features a family zone in Lincoln Park with live entertainment, a photo op area, scarecrow in a box, and Autumn on the Fox Arts and Crafts Show at Pottawatomie Park. Details at www.scarecrowfest.com. Stroll along downtown to admire the scarecrows and visit the businesses, which will offer deals, specials, and events.
