Thousands of people filled St. Charles Saturday for the second day of the 33rd annual Scarecrow Fest.

Festivalgoers looked at scarecrows of various shapes, sizes and themes in Lincoln Park, off Main Street between Fourth and Fifth streets. Some families made scarecrows of their own.

The festival continues 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday in downtown St. Charles. The list of things to do includes the Taste of St. Charles, in which local restaurants will have menu items available for purchase.

This schedule also includes carnival rides, live entertainment and the Autumn on the Fox Art and Craft Show in Pottawatomie Park.

Free shuttles will be available to take visitors to and from designated parking lots.
