Blackpool Civic Trust

Scarecrow Festival

June 30th and July 1st 2012

Salisbury Woodland, off East Park Drive, Blackpool

An awesome turnout of scarecrows. So much work going into them. Who would want to say which is the best. Someone did.

There must have been over a hundred scarecrows including tableaux of scarecrows from residents, pupils, schools, businesses all over Blackpool. Yes, it was noticeable that not a single crow was seen in the woods.

Here is a selection of photographs based partly at random, and partly to get a feel of the event. More will follow.

Thanks to the members of Blackpool Civic Trust and the Volunteer Centre who set it up and to the many creative people who put in so much work to create such a great selection of ideas for scarecrows.

If your scarecrow isn't shown here and you would like it to be let us know. We've probably got a photo or if you have a good photo please send it to us along with any story you'd like to add about how you made it or whatever you wish to comment about, on subject, and we would love to publish it.

More information to follow about who entered, who did what and who was awarded prizes.

We hope you did go down to the woods today:

Elaine crayoning again although she claims to checking entry forms. It keeps her from crowing.
