Scarecrows go Western!

The 22nd Annual Scarecrow Invasion & Family Festival took over Meaford on September 28tt! Donned in the themed Go Western gear, cowboys, cowgirls and community groups paraded through the streets and congregated at the Harbour Pavilion for evening festivities of live music, apple pie contests, bouncy castles and more! Starting in September and leading up to the hoedown, over 250 scarecrows were carefully crafted by volunteers – and were found lining the streets, climbing trees, and dangling from lamp posts. This truly is a source of pride and joy for the community. Be sure to mark this in your calendar for next year! Photos/Story: Marissa Dolotallas
