Scarecrow Fest is dusting off the signs, unpacking nylons, and finalizing plans to celebrate 30 iconic years of scarecrows Oct. 9-11 in downtown St. Charles — and organizers are asking for your help to staff some of the cool, new attractions at this iconic event.
“To celebrate the 30th year we wanted to incorporate a new event into the Fest, so when we heard about the Soda Pop Tour, it was a great fit,” said DeAnn Wagner, Associate Director for the Greater St. Charles Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Scarecrow Fest has become a tradition with many, from locals to visitors from around the country. Families have used the nationally recognized festival as a meeting place for family get-togethers and can remember their favorite scarecrows from over the years. This year, everyone can add the experience of volunteering at the 30th annual festival to their list of memories.
There is still time to become a volunteer at Scarecrow Festival 2015. Volunteers can work as a Soda Jerk or General Store Helper at the Soda Pop Tour or Information Seekers who will be talking to the general public about their Scarecrow Fest experience. Volunteers can sign up on the website at sodapoptour.us/volunteers- stcharles.html or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
