Aberdour Scarecrow Hunt

Welcome to the Aberdour Festival 2024 Scarecrow Competition! This will be the 6th year that we have held this brilliant competition and what a fantastic selection of entries we’ve had over the past few years. 

So, get your thinking caps on and join in the challenge! Families, groups and individuals are invited to make scarecrows with this year’s parade theme of ‘It’s all about the ‘80s’ in mind! Maybe Cowabunga! The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Or snakes, why did it have to be snakes? Indiana Jones, perhaps Lets-a-go! Super Mario or…? We can’t wait to see how creative you can be! Maps will then be available so everyone can follow the Scarecrow Trail!

Families, groups or individuals to submit a text with their name, address and scarecrow name to Maria on 07745 045 020, no later than Wednesday 24th July to ensure your place on the map. Please ensure you receive a confirmation reply by this date also. 

Open to all. More than one scarecrow may be entered per household. Please mention this in text. We would encourage you to display your scarecrows in your gardens/doorsteps during the full festival week, but they MUST BE DISPLAYED ON SATURDAY 27th JULY. 

Maps/voting forms will be available for sale at £1.00 at The Purple Shop and from the Festival Box Office @ The Marquee during Festival Week. The Winner/s will be announced at Beach Day, Saturday 3rd August (after the Sandcastle Competition!). 

The more scarecrows, the more fun … so please join in!!
