Hop aboard and enjoy a jaunt on an old-fashioned horse-drawn hay wagon. The Missouri River and historic architecture of Main Street set the scene as one of the Halloween History Guides provides a spooky overview of the holiday’s traditions and folklore that have been tricking and treating people for generations. Visitors will never look at Main Street quite the same way again.

[Hayrides are one way only and seating is limited.]

Departure locations:

• 900 block of South Main

• 100 block of North Main


Take the “straw poll” in Scarecrow Glen, located in Kister Park, 400 block of South Main, and you’ll find that St. Charles has come down with a severe case of “hay fever.” Explore and enjoy every corner of the park – populated with dozens of cheerful straw figures. Whether traditional or imaginative, whimsical or avant garde, the scarecrows represent the creative minds of merchants and organizations throughout St. Charles County. Be sure to find the ballot box for the chance to vote  for your favorite in the “straw poll.”


Join the musical mob, the Angry Villagers, on the steps of the Gazebo in Scarecrow Glen as they present a creepy chorale of spellbinding tunes for a toe tappin’, hand clappin’, good time. No pitchfork required!
