The Washington County town of Chappell Hill is decked out for fall this weekend for the community’s annual Scarecrow Festival.

The event, which attracts nearly 30,000 people over the weekend, includes craft vendors, live music and entertainment as well as food, children’s activities and scarecrow displays. This year’s festival will also include a World War I 100th anniversary exhibit at the Chappell Hill Historical Society Museum, in coordination with the Brenham Heritage Museum.

Musical performers include the Jeff Jacobs Band, Abigail Taylor, Julia Hatfield and the Ballet Folklorico Herencia Mexicana de Houston.
