Scarecrows will be on display throughout the shopping center. Local artists, crafters, businesses, non-profits and schools create one-of-a-kind, life-size scarecrows to compete for cash awards. Prizes include a $500 judge's award and smaller prizes in several categories including children, non-profit and high school. Entries are free and will be accepted for judging if delivered to the shopping center customer service office by 4 p.m., Friday, Oct. 1.

Vermont Artists Kate and Ernie Brown will demonstrate the art of creative pumpkin painting and will have several examples on display. Families can purchase pumpkins for just $2 and paints will be available for creating their own masterpieces. Recording artist Erik Erskine will provide a free concert of original folk music from 12 to 2 p.m. Professional chefs, amateur chefs and kids are invited to compete for the glory of having their pumpkin pie judged the best of the 2010 Fall Festival. Pumpkin pies of all kinds, including custard, pecan, cheesecake and more will be judged and then sold by the slice to benefit Starting Point, which provides services for local victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. Drop off your best pumpkin pie for the contest and benefit a great organization, too. All pies must be dropped off no later than 10 a.m. on Saturday of the event.

Illusion Farms and their beautiful horses will provide free hay rides around the shopping center throughout the event. Rides leave about every 20 minutes from the playground area. The hay maze will have you literally walking in circles as you try to find your way through. The maze is child friendly and open to all to explore at their own pace. There will be free face painting and balloons for the kids and free apples and cider fresh from local farms for everyone. Settlers' Green Outlet Village is located on Route 16 just south of the village of North Conway.
