Details

Working For Walton are delighted to announce their Scarecrow Festival for 2019!

Returning for its 4th year, this ever popular competition is a fun filled family event for all the community and an eagerly anticipated village celebration.

The festival invites residents of Walton to manufacture and display a whimsical scarecrow or scarecrows on their properties in a place where they can be easily observed from the road side. There is no general theme to the designs so imaginations can run riot to create a varied and entertaining selection of scarecrows throughout the village - there were more than 80 in 2018!

Over the period of the weekend, visitors view these scarecrows and vote for their favourite one and the four winners (one from each quarter of the village) is announced on Sunday afternoon.

During the weekend Scarecrow HQ is Walton Village Hall where there are stalls selling hot food and drinks, refreshments and gifts along with a licensed bar. You can also purchase your map and voting slips here for £3 - just make sure you have the slips back to Scarecrow HQ before 4pm on Sunday 15th!
