Scarecrow Festival

Belle Plaine



The Scarecrow Display will be open daily 10AM – 6PM, September 6 – October 26, 2014.


Since 1983, the Scarecrow Display has been turning heads, and the good old country fun is the ultimate in rural festivities. The little ones quickly become footloose and fancy-free as they wander about the orchard “scarecrow gazing.”


Tractor-pulled wagons take you to the orchard and to the Great Pumpkin Patch. Fun rides, great food and fantastic weekend entertainment. Find the perfect pumpkins, pick a variety of delicious apples, and select from attractive mums, gourds, cornstalks, Indian corn and straw bales for your fall decorations. Visit the Farm Market, the bakery, Fizzy’s Soda Fountain, the farm animals, and browse our unique gifts in the General Store.
