As a celebration of Fall, every year Mahone Bay hosts it’s annual Scarecrow festival. Last Saturday was the 13th Annual festival but a first for Cameron and myself. Residents and businesses alike take part in The Great Scarecrow Challenge, and the Scarecrow’s didn’t disappoint.

Here is a pirate down near the wharf…
