All Saints Scarecrow Festival

North Parramatta

Scarecrows in Motion > All Saints Scarecrow Festival
All Saints Anglican Church at North Parramatta, NSW, held a terrific scarecrow festival on 1-2 April 2006. Dozens of scarecrows were displayed inside the beautiful 1840s All Saints sandstone church, with Parramatta State Member, Mrs Tanya Gadiel, choosing winning scarecrow entries in a range of categories.

Festival Organiser, Mrs Sadie Jones, said the festival was held to raise funds for a new sunday school building. As well as the scarecrow display, there was a live scarecrow competition, a scarecrow coloring in competition, and an art display and fair.

Scarecrows were contributed by local Cub groups, Rainbow Girls Youth Group, All Saints Sunday School, Tara Anglican School, members of Holroyd Art Society and Eastwood Embroidery Guild, and parishioners and families.
