Press release from: Frankenmuth River Place Shops

Harvest and Halloween seasons come together as one big celebration as the Frankenmuth River Place Shops present "Scarecrow Fest 2016," a two-weekend event taking place Saturdays and Sundays, Oct. 15-16 and Oct. 22-23 at the shops, 925 S. Main St., Frankenmuth.

Scarecrows are the stars of the show as businesses across Frankenmuth go all out to create specially-themed scarecrows. Visitors are encouraged to stop by each of the shops to view the scarecrows and cast their "straw vote" for their community-wide favorite.

Pumpkins, as well, have a big role at this year's festival. Back by popular demand, River Place Shops will deploy the pumpkin catapult, where kids are invited to pick out a pumpkin, and launch it more than 50 yards in hopes of (splat!) hitting the target. In addition, pumpkin bowling, pumpkin painting, and arts and crafts are also part of the fun.

Dogs rule again at Scarecrow Fest 2016 as the "Rock-N-Roll K-9 Performance Team" presents a high-energy show featuring tricks, relay racing, choreographed obedience routines, and agility contests with performances each afternoon Oct. 15 and 16. On Sunday, Oct. 16 guests and their four-footed friends will enjoy a doggie costume contest as well as doggie trick-or-treating.

There will be magic and comedy shows on both Oct. 22 and 23. Other activities during this weekend include cherry pie eating and cherry pit spit contests, face painting and "jumping for joy" at the Inflatables Stations. Dress up the youngsters for trick-or-treating on Oct. 23.
