Scarecrow Fest – Kids Weekend

Celebrate fall in Michigan’s Little Bavaria during Scarecrow Fest, with a fun family-friendly festival at Frankenmuth River Place Shops and special scarecrow displays throughout downtown Frankenmuth!
Bring the whole family to Frankenmuth River Place Shops for Kids Weekend of Scarecrow Fest on Saturday, October 22 and Sunday, October 23!
Saturday and Sunday from noon – 6 pm, try your hand at the pumpkin catapult and see how far you can launch a pumpkin! You can also try your hand at pumpkin bowling, pumpkin painting, arts and crafts and take a ride on Grandpa Tiny’s barrel train. Some activities include a small fee.
We will also have free family entertainment in the Festival Platz near the Cass River Bar and Grill during Kids Weekend.
There is a Kids Costume Parade on Sunday, October 23 throughout the complex from 5:15 pm – 5:45 pm starting at the Fest Platz – kids who participate will receive a treat bag! Treat bags are first come, first served.
Two of the 600 treat bags will include a ‘Golden Ticket’ that you can redeem for an awesome Halloween prize package including a huge pumpkin to carve or paint with included paint markers, special candy treats and gift certificates that can be used at any of our stores at River Place Shops! Must be redeemed onsite before October 31, 2022. No cash value.
Scarecrow Fest will also be held the weekend of October 15 and 16, with the theme of Dog Weekend! Please note: Event schedule is subject to change.
