The Fall Harvest Festival in historic Pendleton SC will be held on October 22, 2016 and everyone attending will be greeted by over 100 scarecrows all around town. Voting for your favorite will be held online beginning October 20th until 6 am on the 22nd. At that time, the votes will be tallied and taken to the Information Booth at the Fall Harvest Festival where voting will continue throughout the day. Scarecrow Contest Organizer, Jo McConnell, says that the winner of the People's Choice Award in each of the four categories will win "Bragging Rights", a Blue Ribbon, and $100. Once again there will be these 4 categories: Business, Individual, Group, and Children plus the addition of a new category: Artist with a prize of $500.
Come see us in Pendleton and enjoy this family event featuring great music, wonderful food, creative crafts, and old fashioned childrens games. It is a fun day for the whole family but please leave your pets at home.
What a fun contest. Scarecrows are such a cool thing to create, the homes and yards of the towns people look amazing. :)K
Pendleton, SC reminds me of Royalton, Vt, where we have less than 2,000 caring people who volunteer to help each other and create a tight knit community. I would love to visit Pendleton some year to view all the delightful scarecrows the town members have created. Thank you for sharing.
