The Scarecrow Stroll will be returning, pick up a ballot at any participating local business and vote for your favorite scarecrows displayed outside of the stores, you may win a prize just for voting!

We thank you in advance for visiting and supporting our many small shops and restaurants, the last few months have been a very challenging time for all. We truly miss our friends from the community and look forward to seeing everyone soon!

The audience participation Drum Circle w/ the SoMar Drummers will be back at a special time from 6 to 7 PM. A few changes will be in place: bring your own drum as we will not have instruments to share and bring a chair. We will have free egg shakers to give away for those without instruments. Spectacular performances by aerial artists from the Vertical Dance Co. are also scheduled from 6 to 7 PM and guaranteed to be breathtaking!

NEW for October – there will be Drumline and Drum Off performances by local students from 7 to 8 PM following the Drum Circle. These are free outdoor events, location will be adjacent to the Arts Council at 22660 Washington St, Leonardtown, MD.
