The scarecrow competition is just the start! Scarecrow Fest is all about family fun – carnival rides, music, food trucks, a variety of performances and free activities including bobbing for apples, face painting and pumpkin decorating for kids. New this year is a Best of Living tent where prospective homebuyers will be able to meet with award-winning builders in Cross Creek Ranch to see the spectrum of floor plans, architectural styles, incentives and upgrades available.

The festival is free and open to the public. Wristbands for carnival rides will be $10 per person for unlimited rides.
