October is always a busy month and now that the weather is a little bit cooler, it’s always fun to spend time outdoors. Fall is here and the holiday season is right around the corner, can you believe it? But before we remove the scarecrows and the pumpkins and get the Christmas tree and the snowmen in place, let’s take a look at what to do in Camden County this month.

Scarecrow Stroll
Tuesday, Oct 16 – 5 – 7 pm.
The Scarecrow Stroll takes place Tuesday, October 16th, 5-7 PM. The quaint downtown district of St. Marys will be transformed into a beautiful fall display. Storefronts and historic homes emblazoned with pumpkins, scarecrows, hay bales and flowering potted mums will enhance the harvest season scene. Local businesses and organizations will be creating scarecrows to enhance the medians of Osborne Street. Try to guess which Scarecrow goes with each business or group downtown along the Scarecrow Stroll. For more information contact, St. Marys Welcome Center at (912) 882-4000 or
