Have a ‘scare’ at Fall Festival

pumpkinsMake October extra spooky this year by attending the Greenwich Historical Society’s Fall Festival on Oct. 13, featuring a scarecrow competition.

The community is invited to join the Historical Society in celebrating the harvest season with activities for all ages including crafts, colonial games and a special harvest-themed tour of Bush-Holley House, Greenwich’s only National Historic Landmark. In addition, there will be hayride tours of the Strickland Road Historic District, courtesy of Sam Bridge Nursery Greenhouses. Refreshments will be served. General admission is $10 and free for children two-years-old and younger.

The scarecrow competition will include prizes donated by Cos Cob TV Audio, Ann’s Hobby Center and Smart Kids’ Toys.

For a $25 entry fee ($20 for members) the Historical Society will supply the armature (“the bones”), hay for stuffing, twine and a burlap sack for the head. Participants can customize their scarecrows with clothing and accessories they bring from home. Advance registration for the Scarecrow Competition is required.

The price of general admission to the Fall Festival includes free entry to the Storehouse Gallery exhibition, The New Spirit and The Cos Cob Art Colony, which explores the impact the groundbreaking 1913 Armory Show in New York had on Cos Cob art colony artists, featuring colorful “before and after” examples of their work.

For general admission, guests may pay online or at the door. During the event, the best access to the Bush-Holley Historic Site is either via Sound Shore Drive/Strickland Road or via River Road.
