It's A Big Night For Scarecrows

Meaford | by Claire McCormack  

Meaford's 21st annual Scarecrow Festival parade goes tonight with a special theme.

Scarecrows all over Meaford are sporting red and white for Canada 150.

Over 250 of them are showing it off by hanging from lampposts, lounging on steps, standing in storefronts and generally taking over the town.

This year many of them are notable Canadian inventors, leaders and personalities to mark the milestone.

Friday is the main event in the 21st annual Meaford Scarecrow Invasion, with an apple pie contest, parade and family festival.

The parade will take place Friday September 29th at 6 p.m. down Sykes Street to the harbour.

The family festival will take place at the Rotary Harbour pavilion.

It's free and includes a junior apple pie contest, live music, games and the Meaford Farmer's Market will have all kinds of vendors open that evening.

It all kicks off The Big Fall Weekend which includes the Apple Harvest Craft Show on Saturday and Sunday at the community centre.

Altogether, nearly 400 volunteers have put in over 1,170 hours to make the festival happen.
