Visit the Scarecrow Trail and revel in the “Pure Imagination” used to create a unique array of Scarecrows throughout the Garden. We’ve added Haunted Hang-Outs to the fun this year.

Bring your cameras so you can capture these "creatures" in the beauty of the autumn garden. Cast your vote for your favorite scarecrow during the month of September. Pick up voting forms at the Visitor Desk.

Don’t miss the Sorghum Maze and grab a seat on the hayrides available every Saturday from 10 am-4 pm and Sunday from 1 - 4 pm.
