Sunday, October 5 is the day of the scarecrows in beautiful Stamford (Delaware County).  The long Main Street will be decked out in dozens of homemade scarecrows.  The public is invited to vote for their favorite.  There will also be hayrides, live music, local food and beverages and many craft vendors for this annual Fall tradition.


About "Big Chuck"

Hi folks, this is "Big Chuck" here. I love Upstate New York! I have written several books about the region, do a lot of public speaking around the state, am an award-winning radio broadcaster (since 1989), write a bi-monthly newspaper column and give walking tours of Cooperstown, N.Y. Yes, I do keep busy! I hope we can share some Upstate stories on this blog! If you would like to take a look at my series of Upstate New York books visit
