September and October pave the way for all things fall. From football to festivals, apple picking to bonfires, and pumpkins to fall colors on the trees, we love all things fall! There are a few things that take place AroundAbout Woodstock and Cherokee County each fall, that we wanted to make sure were on your radar, especially if you too love all things fall!
In October, downtown Woodstock’s Main Street becomes lined with unique and whimsical scarecrows for the annual Scarecrow Invasion. This fun and festive event is one sign of fall for locals as businesses, families, and individuals pitch in for a little fun and fundraising.
You too could have your very own scarecrow representing your family or business in downtown Woodstock as this event has expanded this year! If you are interested in taking part in the scarecrow invasion, now is the time to start planning. All you have to do to get started is stop by the Woodstock Visitor’s Center at the historic Dean’s Store, register with a $20 fee and get working on your custom created scarecrow!
