Come out and enjoy Maclay Gardens during the month of October where you will find scarecrows greeting you along the walkways.
Local businesses, non-profit organizations and youth groups build scarecrows to display in the gardens. This is a fun Autumn event that puts you in the spirit of harvest time. Visitors to the park, during the month of October, can vote for their favorite scarecrow to win the People's Choice Award!
On Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays starting October 9 and ending November 1, there will be ranger-led hayrides that take you through the gardens where rangers will tell the story behind each scarecrow. Hayrides run from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. NO HAYRIDES will be offered during our Moon Over Maclay Event held on October 13, 2019.
If you, or your organization would like to build a scarecrow to add to this event, visit Friend of Maclay Garden State Park.
