It's become a tradition for many families and friends. They travel from near and far for the annual St. Charles Scarecrow Fest each year. This year's fest runs from Friday through Sunday, Oct. 5-7, in downtown St. Charles. "It's fun if it's cold, it's fun if it's warm. We just have a great time seeing the great decorations, eating and having fun together," said Nancy Brooks of Elmwood Park. "We always make a scarecrow, too. We've got to. It's just so much fun."
