Description: The Darling Summerfest 2017 will take place over the weekend of 27, 28, 29 October!
We all know that a scare crow is usually an object made to resemble a human figure, set up to scare birds away from the field where crops are grown.
Darling plans to borrow from this age old idea, a symbol of peaceful country life.
As part of this new annual event village- and farm schools, families, local clubs, outreach initiatives etc. will build scare crows to be exhibited at the Darling Summerfest which this year will take place from 27 to 29 October 2017 We are aiming for 20 – 30 human sized creations made from recycled material.
The participants’ effort and creativity will be rewarded by prizes for the three most popular specimen as chosen by the audience of the Scare Crow Party at Evita se Perron on 3 November.
For the visitors of the Darling Summerfest the scare crows, spread around the village, will serve as the theme for a competition. People will hand in their votes online at Scare Crow Hotspots, designated places with free Wifi.
So our visitors wander the village looking for scare crows which in turn guide them to the numerous other attractions of this exciting festival.
Any profit from the Scare Crow Project will be equally shared between three Darling outreach projects.
