img_7892Unique crafts, delicious baked goods, creative gifts, popular vendors … there’s something to catch everyone’s eye at the Great Akron Scarecrow Festival.

Make your first stop the Nature’s Harvest store that features hundreds of baked goods, crafts and fall decorating items made by Friendship & Service Club members.  Popular items sell out quickly, so get there early!

img_7781More than 50 vendors are set up throughout the park.  Interested in becoming a vendor at this year’s festival?  Download a registration form for all the details.  Or, contact Sue Higman at 712-568-2852 or

And, don’t forget the scarecrow auction that starts at 2:00 p.m.  All scarecrows entered in the decorating contest will be up for bidding, so you can take the fun home with you.
