St. Charles Gears Up for Scarecrow Fest

Canopies and scarecrows are popping up around downtown St. Charles!

There is a change in the air, and that change is more than just the cooler weather and the fall colors painting the trees.

Canopies and scarecrows began popping up around St. Charles on Thursday as preparations kicked into the final stages to set up for Scarecrow Fest, the annual three-day celebration that draws tens of thousands of people to downtown St. Charles.

The scarecrows range from the fairly traditional to whimsical, offering an eclectic mix for those intending to stroll around viewing the creations scattered among a mix of activities and that will get under way Friday.

So here’s a small photo gallery as a preview of what to expect — feel free to add your own photos to the mix to make it more interesting! And get ready to have fun.

Here are quick links to the Scarecrow Fest website highlighting the weekend’s activities:
