THE SCARECROWS & THE “SCAREDY CROWS” WILL ADD TO THE FALL FUN IN FALMOUTH VILLAGE, MA
Falmouth Village, MA – Each fall for the last few years, one by one the scarecrows begin appearing throughout Falmouth Village, MA. This year, the scarecrow show promises to be even bigger and better with more than 20 businesses “making hay” with uniquely styled and themed scarecrows. Look for a complete list of scarecrow locations at www.FalmouthVillageAssociation.com.
And those scarecrows are doing their job! They’ve scared the crows into 20 participating businesses up and down Falmouth Village’s Main Street and visitors are challenged to find them all. Look for the “scaredy crow” in the window of participating businesses, then go inside, pick up your registration form and start finding the rest of the crows. Completed entries are those that identify all 20 “scaredy crows” and turn them in to Eight Cousins Bookstore. Prizes will be randomly drawn and awarded from completed entries.
Here’s a description of the fall and Halloween events coming to Falmouth Village throughout October.
