1 Day : Visit It : Scarecrow Festival

All four of my kids loved the Scarecrow Festival at Thanksgiving Point last year, so I'm glad to see it's scheduled again for this month. The activities ranged from big blow-up slides and tunnels to old-fashioned fair games to a little train ride compete with engineer. Though I had expected it to feel like a cheesy carnival, I was pleasantly surprised at a quainter, autumn-y atmosphere. I recommend taking sack lunches (there is food, but you know $$$), a stroller, a camera, and sweaters.

If you don't live in my valley, find similar events at your local nurseries, farms, and family venues.

(Caveat: The tickets may seem a little pricey at $5 for adults and $10 for children, but the family pass is reasonable at $30. And the festival comes only once per year.)
