The annual Bourbonnais Township Scarecrow festival is always a huge success.
Starting the first week of October, local businesses, charities or individuals can enter the contest for a chance to win prizes and promote their businesses or group.
The contest winners are determined by the appointed judges and also by the coveted peoples choice voters. The transformation from a simple plastic fence on Kennedy Drive into a 2 block display of Halloween fall displays and scarecrows is almost overnight. Lots of hard work and creative designs are displayed that must have taken weeks to work on just to be ready for the big set up. Take a nice walk with your family past all the entries and cast your votes for your favorite. You can even pose in some of the displays for pictures. It's a great event for the whole family.
Perry Farm in Bradley Illinois is on the national registry and was a working farm until the last surviving Perry family member died in 1960. The farm was donated to the State of Illinois then in the 1980's, it was given to the Bourbonnais Park district. The Perry family will declared that the farm and property can never be used for anything other than a free public park property.
The Perry Farm park also hosts a live action Legend of Spooky Hollow production every year, with a whole cast of local actors and actresses playing the parts of 1800 period townfolk. Not too many things scarier than a headless horseman racing after you down a dark path in the night.
