Scarecrows 2012 Have Taken Over Cambria

The 2012 Cambria Scarecrow Festival, presented by the Cambria Historical Society, is in full swing. We had our first light rain of the season, the dust has settled, the sun is out, and it is a beautiful sunny day in our little coastal town.

To see the “ladies, gentlemen, and creatures” come anytime during the month of October. The artists of Cambria are displaying their talents and have created colorful displays for the enjoyment of all. Each year this event has grown. This year there are over 300 “scarecrows” on display. Bring your camera and take a walk down Main Street between the East Village and the West Village. Then drive out to the seaside Moonstone Beach Drive. You’ll never think of a “scarecrow” in the same way again.

Below are some of my favorites. Remember these are only several of 300!

A Cambria Gardener. This gal was made by one of the Cambria Garden Club members. She has on some Garden Club handpainted overalls. She looks like she may have a little knee trouble. She loves gardening!


These bicycling “scarecrows” are actually pedaling.

A Cambrian walking her dogs. My friend Leanne made this.


A Cambrian Priest welcoming visitors.































A Cambrian couple waiting for the theatre to open.





























Anyone for bridge? These look like friends of mine.
















This dancing Elephant Seal moves. Visit their colony while you’re up here.



This one makes me think. Did the lady beat the crow to some eggs?



























This was a favorite last year.

What a happy bee!
