Kate Woods Novoa, aka Big Sur Kate, has posted some awesome scarecrow photos on her blog. Check them out at http://bigsurkate.wordpress.com/2012/09/25/cambrias-annual-scarecrow-festival/.

The businesses add new scarecrows every day, until the judging takes place, so come on down and take a look for yourself. Great photo ops! I found out from a long-time resident who informed me that the high school art studens make the scarecrows and sell them for $20 to the businesses that don't make their own. This will all culminate at the Harvest Festivwl at the Biachinni house, aka, the Cambrian Historical Society, the second weekend in October, at the corner of Burton and Center.

On the way out of town, I saw so many others I had missed! Several construction workers, the invisible man, the male and female "mooners", the gal with the flying dog, and at least a dozen more. There are between 200-250 total "scarecrows" that have taken over Cambria. Quite a sight to see. I never even went down Moonstone Drive where there are many more! Next time, I guess.
