The Hoffman Estates Park District's fifth annual Scarecrow Festival will be held from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept 22, at Vogelei Park, 650 W. Higgins Road in Hoffman Estates. Admission is free.

In addition to the fest with its display of festive, whimsical scarecrows, the park district is adding the World Wide Day of Play.

Residents and businesses are invited to submit a scarecrow for free in the contest. Local businesses can also have a table for just $20, if they enter a scarecrow in the contest.

The park district will have hay bales available to scarecrow contestants for just $3 and provides a stake at the contestant's site and another hay bale to add to the display. The event occurs rain or shine; it will be moved into the Vogelei Barn in the event of inclement weather. For information, visit heparks.org.
