It's so much fun! Just as the leaves fall and turn brown, colourful scarecrows start popping up all around the hamlet and beyond. It's a contest actually. During the first week of November the entries will be judged and chosen as the best in their category. Best "human" scarecrow, Best animal scarecrow, Best multiple character display, Cutest scarecrow, Scariest scarecrow, Best celebrity look-alike, Best overall scarecrow(s). Some, like the Outdoor guy getting electric therapy at the Physiotherapy are tied to the business or creator and some, like Trump's Wall are tied to current events. Some are simple and some elaborate. Lots are scary - tied into Halloween and many are traditional. They're all great, as they bring fun, colour and character to Bragg Creek.
