Scarecrow Fest

C&D enters their scarecrow BILL M. LADER, CPA in Solvang's Sixth Annual Scarecrow Fest

It's that time of year again and it's "game on" for which scarecrows will walk away winners. In prior years, the Solvang “Scarecrow Fest” has received nationwide publicity and has drawn increased tourism to the valley.

Locals, tourists and area merchants vote via ballot boxes placed around the city to choose the winners.

The categories are:

• Best Scarecrow in Motion
 • Best Use of Recycled Materials
• Best Use of a Business Theme
 • Most Danish
 • Spookiest
 • Most Humorous

From those six categories, the “Best Scarecrow Overall” from Solvang will be competing against the “best scarecrow” from Buellton, Los Alamos, Los Olivos, and Santa Ynez.
