WE COULDN'T DO WHAT WE DO WITHOUT THE HELPING HANDS & MINDS FROM OUR COMMUNITY!!! THANK YOU!!
More than 120 people help to bring the festival to life each year. In a town of 900 this is no small feat. In addition to the team of scarecrow makers, pumpkin carvers, decorators, designers and organizers, we have the set-up crew that erect more than 200 scarecrows in one well-organized but busy day. (And then take them down again a few weeks later.) We are also grateful to the residents, businesses, and venues throughout town that make their own scarecrows and decorate their homes and their store fronts to welcome visitors to the town during the festival, and help make Mahone Bay such a special place to visit.
