Celebrate the autumn season at the 12th Annual Scarecrow Festival, presented by the Shawnee Downtown Partnership at City Hall (11110 Johnson Drive) on Saturday, October 1 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
This family-friendly event is free and 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 of 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 decorating pumpkins. Supplies and decorations will be provided at no cost.
For you chefs out there showcase your skills by participating in the baking contest, which includes 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.
