Scarecrows are taking over Cobb! Enjoy the season with family and friends at “Scarecrows on Main” in downtown Kennesaw and “Scarecrows in the Square” in Marietta Square. Residents, organizations, and schools showcase unique scarecrows along Kennesaw’s Main Street from September 30 – November 1 for you to enjoy and vote for your favorites. Marietta’s schools and businesses have themed scarecrows that reflect the organization or Marietta’s history on display throughout October, but be sure to come back on October 21 for HarvestFest to vote for your favorite “squarecrow”!

During October, museum visitors will experience the Root House as it would have been following a death in the household. Curtains will be drawn, and rooms will be adorned with black crepe and ribbons. In addition, visitors can view 19th-century embalming equipment, mourning jewelry made from human hair, and other curious artifacts related to death and mourning in the Victorian era.

Two Cobb County cities offer tours exploring the area’s paranormal landmarks. Ghosts of Marietta hosts both walking and bus tours around downtown. Learn stories of the most haunted buildings in Marietta featured on television and the grim details of why they linger. Acworth Ghost Tours are led on foot through downtown on Friday and Saturday nights in October.


The changing of the season brings cooler weather, and with it, the unmistakable urge to get outside and experience the vibrant colors of Fall. From mountain peaks to rocky creeks, we have gathered five of Cobb County’s most scenic hiking spots to soak in Fall foliage, including Cauble Park, Heritage Park, Kennesaw Mountain, Paces Mill, and Sope Creek.
