Come view the scarecrows and enjoy family fun at the seventh annual Scarecrow Harvest. Enjoy live country music from High Cotton, games of crow-cornhole, hay rides, face painting, historical demos, artsy activities, story-telling and inflatables for the kids. Barbecue sandwiches, hot dogs and fall treats such as caramel apples will be offered. In conjunction with the Scarecrow Harvest, browse the Alpharetta Farmers Market and participate in a scavenger hunt competition.
