Battle Observer Comment: Scarecrow festival a success

BATTLE’S scarecrow festival draws to a close tomorrow (Saturday).

Despite the inevitable vandalism to some of the creations, many of them remained intact and, undeterred by the recent unseasonal weather conditions, the festival appears to have once again been successful in drawing in visitors.

Take the time to check out the trail and vote for your favourite before this event finishes for another year.

The creators of the scarecrows judged to be the best, and the most popular, will be rewarded for their efforts at the annual Battle In Bloom awards ceremony on Thursday evening at The Almonry.

So whether you plump for Pavarotti or go bananas over Carmen Miranda, cast your vote and help your favourite be crowned top scarecrow.
