Kurrajong Scarecrow Festival

The Kurrajong Scarecrow Festival is normally held on the fourth weekend of October in the Hawkesbury area of NSW, Australia -- however, for various reasons it will not be held in 2013.

Scarecrows built by local families around the Kurrajong district are judged on the Saturday. Category winners were awarded certificates and great prizes donated by local businesses.

Then on the Sunday scarecrows are brought into Memorial Park in Kurrajong for the 'Spectacle of Scarecrows'. Market stalls are erected in the street and the crowds enjoy performances by local children and musical artists.
