Celebrate the autumn season at the ninth annual Scarecrow Festival presented by the Shawnee Downtown Partnership Saturday, October 4 at City Hall 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon.
There is no cost to attend this family-friendly event, which has something for everyone to enjoy, including activities for the kids, a Farmers' Market and seasonal displays.
Downtown Shawnee will be transformed as businesses and merchants participate in a Scarecrow Contest. Come and check out all the creative displays along Johnson Drive and in front of City Hall.
Kids can get into the act as well by building their own scarecrow and painting pumpkins. Supplies and decorations will be provided at no cost.
For you chefs out there, don’t miss the opportunity to showcase your skills by participating in the baking contest, which will include categories for pumpkin pie, fruit pie, and pumpkin bread. Winners in each category will receive a $50 prize. Samples of the delectable desserts will be available for purchase at the conclusion of the contest.
