KENDALL – Passing showers didn’t keep people from enjoying the annual Scarecrow Festival in Kendall on Saturday. Events included live music, wagon rides, pumpkin decorating and scarecrow making.

This year’s theme was “Your Favorite Holiday.”  This entry on the front lawn of Kendall Elementary School pays tribute to St. Patrick’s Day. It was entered by Mrs. Pettrone’s 6th Grade Class.
