Cambria Events, Festivals and Fairs

Cambria Festivals

Blowing in the wind takes on new meaning when you look at this life sized scarecrow made by Val and Gil Eastman of Cambria, California.  This was the most unique of all the Cambria Events I have witnessed.  The Scarecrow Harvest Festival is a fantastic event and it was a successful event two years running.

The actual festival was held October 9, 2010 but the scarecrows will be on the streets the entire month of October. Ya'll need to come take a look.  Some of these things look real.

The Scarecrow Harvest Festival will be an anunal event so make plans to attend next year.

The guy hanging from the pole was one of hundreds of unique scarecrows placed all over town.  In fact, the dude hanging from the pole won best of the show prize.  He was pretty cool.

If you would like to see all the scarecrows entered in this Cambria Event I am going to supply a link.  Ken, a friend of mine  built the site and he also helped judge the scarecrows.  For a look at all the scarecrows and his great website Click Here.

If you don't like wine or scarecrows how about the arts.  Cambria is a famous art colony.  The town is full of various artist of all types, genders and ages.  If you like art you need to visit Cambria.
