St. Charles: Scarecrow Fest trolley ride

St. Charles is gearing up to play host to its annual Scarecrow Fest, and getting around the expansive fall festival is as easy as hopping on the free trolley. The fun happens October 11-13, with trolley service available from 10 a.m. to 4:30 pm. One of these stops brings visitors to the "First State Bank Kids Zone" just south of the Main Street Bridge in downtown St. Charles. Activities at the kids zone will include scarecrow making, pony and carnival ride, Radio Disney and a live entertainment area. Children will also love other areas of the festival: scarecrow displays, petting zoo, car show, dog demos, pumpkin carving, ice cream eating -- the list goes on and on. So, pull up the schedule to plot your activities and your route around the fest. (There's also a handy shuttle bus to get you to and from parking lots.)

There's plenty more information about the festival online at
