HarvestFest Scarecrow Chase

Some 2010 Great Scarecrow Parade participants putting their homemade guitars to good use after the parade.*

What is the Great Scarecrow Chase?
  Only one of Rockport HarvestFest's most important annual traditions!  This event will help draw the day to a close and is designed for the whole family to enjoy.

The Great Scarecrow Chase is a chance for children to show their costumed finery (we especially love homemade costumes!) in a parade through Rockport, meet the Great Scarecrow himself, and try to catch up with him - rumor has it he might even have a treat to pass out... 

The Great Scarecrow Chase begins at 4:30 in Harvey Park and ends in front of the Old Firehouse Trust Building in Dock Square.  E-mail us at rockportfestivals@gmail.com with any questions.
