Scarecrow and Jack-O’-Lantern Painting Party to be held at Former Governors’ Mansion

BISMARCK—The Former Governors’ Mansion is having an old-fashioned scarecrow making and jack-o'-lantern painting party on Saturday, October 11 from 1 to 4 p.m. Located at the corner of Fourth Street and Avenue B in Bismarck, the event is free and open to the public.

Sticks, straw and twine will be available for each participant to make a life-size scarecrow to take home or leave on display on the lawn through Halloween.

“We will have some clothing on hand for anyone to use, but participants are encouraged to bring old clothing for their use,” said Johnathan Campbell, site supervisor of the Former Governors’ Mansion State Historic Site.

Pumpkins, paint, and tools for carving will be provided. Participants may take their pumpkins or display them on the mansion lawn through Halloween. Due to limited supplies, scarecrow materials and pumpkins will be available on a first come, first served bases and we ask that family’s team up to make a scarecrow.

Treats and beverages will be served. The Former Governors’ Mansion State Historic Site is open year-round. Admission is free. For more information call 701.328.9528 or email jcampbell@nd.gov.
