Easton Scarecrow Festival Includes a Stop at Trinity, Easton

Easton Scarecrow Festival Includes a Stop at Trinity, Easton
On Halloween, is there any place scarier at night than a churchyard with old tombstones, trees with craggy branches in the shadow of a big Gothic tower?

Come and see during the Easton Scarecrow Festival on Friday, October 21 from 6 to 9 p.m. and on Saturday, october 22 from 9 am to 3 p.m. The Festival inlcudes a scarecrow clinic where children of all ages have fun building a scarecrow, face-painting, pumplin painting, treat bag doecorating, a jack-o-lanterns judging, a scary hair contest and hear live entertainment. From 8-9 p.m. on both nights there will be a haunted walking tour of the historic homes and buildings of downtown Easton.

It is during this walk that people will visit Trinity's churchyard and hear a scary story from the church steps.
Admnission is free, although some events, including the walking tours, require a fee. All activities begin at Centre Square in Easton.

Tickets for the tour are limited to the first 80 and to those 16 years and older and cost $5. Advanced sales at Connections Gallery, Pearly Bkaer's Ale House, Which brew and Porter's Pub.

If you are interested in volunteering to help with any of the festival activities, please call Pat or robin at 610-559-1380 and leave a message and they will get back to you.
