The 42nd annual Chappell Hill Scarecrow Festival is right around the corner.

This Saturday and Sunday, Chappell Hill will be home to over 250 vendors, which will have arts and crafts, jewelry, clothing, food, and more.

Chappell Hill Historical Society President Joel Romo says the yearly event draws in hundreds to thousands of visitors to Washington County.



Entertainment for the weekend includes performances from Braydon Zink, the Heart String Band, Julia Hatfield, Justin Cole, and a Ballet Folklorico group out of Houston.

Romo says the Festival has come from small beginnings, to become something that involves the whole community.



Admission to the event is free, and parking is $5. People can park in the lot on FM 1155, just north of the intersection of U.S. Highway 290 and FM 1155.

The Festival takes place at 9 a.m. on Saturday and goes until 6 p.m., as well as 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
