The park will be filled with scarecrows to enjoy, while live bands play under The Big Tent from 10 to 4. For food, dine on hot eats like burgers, hotdogs, sweet potatoes, and fried dough with maple cream.

Sunday will be the last day of the event, with family games and activities kicking off at 10 am until 2 pm. Shriner Clowns will be face painting and balloon twisting from 11 am to 3 pm. And of course, more yummy food and local coffee!
