This free family-friendly event has something for everyone, including scarecrow making, pumpkin decorating, a Farmers’ Market and seasonal displays. Supplies and decorations will be provided at no cost.
Downtown Shawnee will be transformed as businesses and merchants participate in a scarecrow contest. Come and check out all of the creative displays along Johnson Drive and in front of City Hall.
For you chefs out there showcase your skills by participating in the baking contest, which includes categories for pumpkin pie, fruit pie, and pumpkin bread. Winners in each category will receive a $50 prize. Samples of the delectable desserts will be available for purchase at the conclusion of the contest.
