10/19 Glocester Scarecrow Festival

Why: See dozens of scarecrows line Chepachet Village, sip piping hot drinks and munch on apple cider doughnuts to get into the fall feel. Awards will be given out to the best scarecrows. Entertainment and more food will be available along Putnam Pike and face painting, plus pony rides and rabbit displays will keep the kiddos busy. Rhode Island folk duo, Atwater-Donnelly, will perform live music, too. The scarecrows will remain up for viewing until November 3.
Where: Chepachet Village, Main St., Chepachet.
