Also appeared at the The Great Scarecrow Festival & Antique Fair which was held again this year at Mahone Bay, Friday September 28, to Sunday September 30, 2007. Residents and businesses alike take part in The Great Scarecrow Challenge. There were scary stories at The Biscuit Eater Cafe & Books on Orchard Street and 150 lighted pumpkins to grace the nights. There was also a huge assembly of antique and classic cars and a showing of modern muscle cars. Three separate antique shows, lots of live music and a wine tasting event helped to swell the population far beyond that of the 900 or so souls who ordinarily haunt these streets. A true local success story.
The scarecrows are on hand for interviews until Hallowe'en. We will eventually post some of these to our regular web site. This small format does not do them justice.
