Garstang Scarecrow Festival 2018


Wow! What a weekend we had. It was simply amazing.

The amount we’ve raised for CRY, Macmillan, Phoebe and Thumbs up for Charlie along with Team Shazzann was absolutely amazing.

We received over 160 scare row entries and we had a super weekend welcoming visitors and local residents from across the town.

The people of Garstang & surrounding areas, we salute you for supporting us. 💕💕💕🎪🎪🏆🏆

Here are some amazing reviews we have received.

"We went today, took my two grandchildren Joseph 7 and Eliza 2 and even though it rained we had a great time. There was lots of great scarecrows everywhere, gingerbread scarecrows to decorate, storytelling, rhymes and scarecrow making at the library, making bird feeders on the field, little fairground and lovely food in the church hall. The people are so friendly and one lady 'scarecrow' gave Eliza a knitted scarecrow to keep. Good Luck for the rest of the weekend!"

"Only found out about this through the power of Facebook (what a great invention!). We live in Blackburn which isn't that far away really & we always go for walks & thought this would be a bit different. We LOVED it. 
The face on my 8 yr old boy when he saw the different ones was amazing! Our favourites were the lion, the witch & the wardrobe, chicken run, the wrong trousers & the Mr potato head where you could change the face your self!Thank you for a lovely day out! X"

"We had a great afternoon out at the Scarecrow festival. Parking was great in the field on Kepple Lane, easy and not too busy. We had a fun filled afternoon decorating scarecrow gingerbread men at the CRY stand, meeting a tortoise, scorpion & tarantula at Little Zoo to you stand, making a bird food necklace at the RSPB stand and lots of fun on the funfair rides!! Well done to all the organisers the kids had a fantastic afternoon x"

"Thank you to everyone who worked so tirelessly to make the Scarecrow Festival such fun. It was great to see Garstang so busy with lots of happy faces. As a volunteer in many capacities myself I fully appreciate the work that is put in. You should all be very proud of yourselves. Give yourselves a big pat on the back from us!"
