Scarecrow Festival

This weekend we attended a neighboring town's Scarecrow Festival. We also went last year and I think it will be one of our family's fall traditions.  The festival has the normal costly attractions like a carnival and food vendors, but it also has tons of things to do for free or just a couple dollars. We were there for almost four hours on Saturday and spent only $5. The kids had fun collecting free souvenirs (shovels, bubbles, frisbees. etc) and making crafts (a bird feeder and ghost sucker).  And of course, the highlight of the event is the scarecrows.
