2011 Scarecrow Contest in Sturbridge MA - Vote for Your Favorite!

2011 Scarecrow Contest in Sturbridge MA - Vote for Your Favorite!

dragon scarecrow


The annual Harvest Festival in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, is all set to take place the weekend of October 15 and 16.  One favorite tradition of the festival is the Scarecrow Contest.  Handmade by local residents, over 30 scarecrows are now on display on the front lawn of the Publick House Historic Inn (Route 131/Main Street).  When you visit Harvet Festial, stop at the Publick House and pick up a voting sheet.  You may vote for your favorite in each of several categories.  Take your time, though, the craftsmanship on display makes it difficult to select just a few favorites.

The video I've included here provides a preview of some of the scarecrows, but there are many others to see.  Enjoy!

Kathryn, We've got lots of fall festivals around here, but I don't think any of them include a scarecrow competition!

Great post! I love the video you attached too! My friend who use to live in Mass for a while says it is beautiful there. George Norry (radio speaker) says that many people flock to Salem (I think) during this season.

I am subscribing to you so I can see more of your work! I hope you enjoy my stuff too!

Liz and Bill:  This is the favorite festival here in Sturbridge.  The event draws people from miles around.

Conrad:  They are quite creative this year!

Hannah:  Thank you for stopping by.  Glad you enjoyed my little show.

Sussie:  Oh yes, Salem is a huge draw, what with the witches and all.  Quite wicked.

Kathryn, what a fun community event. It must be rather scary. Your production on the video....was great and I loved the music. Very fun for this Thursday morning. I am sure the whole community had fun. That's a good thing. Have a beautiful day!
