The annual Mary Valley Scarecrow Festival is back on October 20th to November 12th, 2016. You are invited to join this highly anticipated community event that celebrates the unique rural character of Maleny through a traditional creation and display of scarecrows.
Residents devote time to paying tribute to the scarecrow. Since ancient times, the presence of a scarecrow is believed to not only to protect crops but also help increase fertility and enrich the harvest. That’s why every year, the community is encouraged to dress this beloved rural character up for the yearly scarecrow competition.
Everyone of all ages is called to enjoy creating scarecrows and display them in front of their homes, shops, and farms. Entries submitted each year are classified under three categories, namely: Artistic, or anything borne out of an original idea; Child, or those entries made by children ages five to 15 years old; and Traditional, or the usual T-shaped skeleton and straw-stuffed body.
You, too, can enter the scarecrow competition. Here’s how: http://www.maryvalleyartslink.com.au/mary-valley-scarecrow-competition-entry-guidelines.
