The Scarecrow Festival is this coming weekend (see the flyer at the link in this sentence). It is really fun... lots of crafts, interesting foods, face painting, and scarecrows everywhere! Chapel Hill is lovely country with rolling hills and historic homes, and is just south of Brenham on Highway 290. Be sure to get there early as you will have a long walk from where you park if you don't. This is one of the smaller Texas festivals, but the crowds in Texas seem to turn up regardless of size!
I wish I had a photo available to paste in here... but alas, it has been many years since we went to the festival, and my photos from then are not on this PC anymore.
