Scare(crow) away those end-of-summer blues

Bring your family and a appetite for fun to James City County's Chickahominy Riverfront Park to enjoy games and arts and crafts — including stuffing a scarecrow.

If you're interested in scarecrow stuffing, show up early. Supplies will be handed out on a first-come, first-served basis until they run out. Come and spend time watching your kids as they familiarize themselves with scarecrows and just how much work goes into stuffing them.

There will be pony rides and moon bounces for more adventuresome children, and local food vendors will provide sustenance for of those in attendance.

Bring your camera if you'd like to memorialize the event, which is an annual county event. Admission: $5/car (cash or check) and Scarecrow Stuffing: $20/scarecrow and includes all supplies. Activities are on Sept. 16 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Chickahominy Riverfront Park, 1350 John Tyler Highway
