Scarecrows all the rage for Show

WALKING along West High St you may notice some figures lurking in a shop front window, but don’t be alarmed as they are all part of the show... the Coffs Harbour Agricultural Show that is.

This year will feature a scarecrow competition, with all creations to be carried in the grand parade on Saturday, May 14, and displayed in the pavilion until 4pm Sunday, May 15.

The idea came from Honi Reifler, who each year brings memorabilia made by Sherwood Cliffs students to display at the show. Last year’s display featured a scarecrow, which got Ms Reifler thinking.

Anyone can enter the free competition and there are no restrictions on material but the emphasis is on recycled resources. Scarecrows must be secured on a broomstick or similar so they can be carried in the parade on Saturday at 2pm where judging will take place. Register entries at the Youth Stage between noon and 1pm on the day.

Displayed along with the scarecrows in Caba’s Drapery window are two hessian pigs, which were inspired by the Racing Diving Pigs featured at the Royal Easter Show. These can be seen in action at the Coffs Harbour show.
