Falmouth Village is famous for its striking collection of scarecrows displayed throughout October and November. Be sure to visit Falmouth Village to take in the creative scarecrows fashioned by retailers, restaurants and businesses along Falmouth Village’s Main Street and Queens Buyway, welcoming customers.
To add to the fun, be sure to participate in the “scared crow” scavenger hunt too! pick up a registration sheet from businesses throughout Falmouth Village, then look for the scared crows inside participating stores. There are at least 20 of them! Find all the scared crows and your name will be entered into a drawing for prizes from participating businesses. It’s easy, fun and free! No purchase required.
Since 1978 the Cape Cod Marathon, a Falmouth Track Club event, draws runners from around the United States and the world. The Palmer House is located just a few steps from the start and finish lines – a wonderful location for race participants or spectators.
“The Cape Cod Marathon takes its participants on a twenty-six mile loop around the town, beginning in the historic Falmouth Village Green, past the picturesque Falmouth Inner Harbor, along the breathtaking Nantucket Sound vistas of Falmouth Heights and Menauhant, across Green Pond and through the rustic wooded areas of Davisville and past Falmouth’s legendary Cranberry bogs in Hatchville. The race then turns west towards the Buzzards Bay villages of West Falmouth and Sippiwissett and south through the internationally famous scientific community of Woods Hole.
Winding through Woods Hole, the race then returns to the beaches of the Sound with a stunning turnaround, past the lighthouse and along the beaches of Surf Drive and then finally back through the downtown streets of Falmouth to finish at the Village Green. The marathon’s route gives participants a unique view of almost every section of Falmouth and its neighborhoods and people.” – Cape Cod Marathon
