Bring your family to Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens to build your very own scarecrow at this popular annual fall event! We’ll provide all the materials to build anything from a “mini-scare” to a full-sized “crow” to take home after the event, but feel free to bring that special scarecrow accessory you’ve been longing to use. Gardens staff will assist with fastening tools and hardware, and we’ll be pressing homemade cider during the festivities. Come early, as supplies will only last so long; and while registration is not required, it’s a good idea to purchase tickets in advance to guarantee a scarecrow.
Where: Great Lawn
Price: $10 per scarecrow, plus regular Gardens Admission
