On display through November 4, 2012, Scarecrow features scarecrows created by local organizations & schools. You’ll need to buy a ticket to check them out, but since the gardens are gorgeous & perfect for picnics, it makes for a relaxing afternoon out.
As for the scarecrows, my favorites were “Victorian Lady” and “Zoey Crow” (a dog scarecrow). And the exhibition works as a fundraiser for the participating organizations. When you purchase the grounds ticket to Scarecrow, you can write the number of your favorite on the back of the ticket & cast your vote for the best. The organizations receive $1 per vote.
Admission is $8 for adults, $7 for seniors (age 65+), & $5 for students, and children under age 6 are admitted free.
Want to get in on the cheap? At 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, October 20, 2012, stop by for Scarecrow Storytime at Agecroft: Caws and Effect with storyteller Pamela Bomboy. Admission is $4 per person, and children must be accompanied by an adult.
Agecroft Hall is located at 4305 Sulgrave Road, Richmond. 804-737-3767
