Get Out the (Scarecrow) Vote

November 3, 2009

A few weeks ago we graced the streets of lovely Fairport for their Scarecrow Festival. Despite it being a manufactured attraction to entice you to come and spend money in their fair town, we had a great time. It helped that the weather was fantastically autumnal. I could have done without the non-free (in fact, pricey) children’s entertainment, but we were mostly content to walk the streets, see the scarecrows, and partake of strictly complimentary attractions.

There were LOT’S of clever scarecrows (and some scary ones), but of course I appreciated the more historical ones like this:


While some might lament the injection of petty politics into the sacred Scarecrow Festival, I thought this was a stroke of political genius. Hey, if won’t write you a song, the next best thing has got to be a Scarecrow with a sense of humor.
