Come join us on the lawn in front of the Visitor Center at Washington-on-the-Brazos State Historic Site. Everyone is invited to listen to some Spooky Tales from the past at Independence Hall at 3:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. There will be games for the kids, refreshments will be served, and bags filled with candy & treats will be handed out to all children attending the festival while supplies last. Scarecrows created by Washington-on-the-Brazos staff will line the walkway at the entrance of the Visitor Center. Our visitors will be asked to participate in our scarecrow decorating contest by selecting their favorite one. Family friendly costumes are optional for the kid’s costume parade beginning at 5:30 p.m.
