The scarecrows are invading, the scarecrows are invading! Starting early September, until the end of October, Meaford will once again be invaded by scarecrows of all shapes and sizes; bringing back the community’s fall tradition of 25 years! The Scarecrow Parade and Festival will take place on Friday, September 30. Enjoy a drive around Meaford to observe the creativity and excitement of businesses and residents as they decorate their properties with scarecrows and fall décor. Don’t miss the parade and family festival, and the very popular Apple Harvest Craft Show taking place on the same weekend.
