Funtober Fall Festivals

Fall Scarecrow Festivals

If I only had a brain! Immortalized in the story of the Wizard of Oz, and numerous other books and movies such as Robinson Crusoe, you’ll find that there are now fall scarecrow festivals to celebrate the device used by farmers to discourage birds from feeding on seeds and crops in their fields. Although modern farmers have other techniques to scare off the crows that once plagued their fields, the often amusing scarecrow is celebrated in numerous fall festivals around the country.
