Mahone Bay Scarecrow Festival

This is usually the weekend of my annual October Mahone Bay weekend, but Peter couldn't go this weekend because he has to take pictures of Bill Cosby at the casino tonight. V. cool.. Besides, it's raining this weekend.  And we're going there in two weeks. So here are some pics from last year when I went with my friend.

Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia is my absolute favourite town in the world.  It's all old house porn, adorable shops and restaurants.  It's also home of  Nova Scotia's phantom ship, the Young Teazer.
The first weekend of October, the town holds the Scarecrow Festival.  Hundreds of the most imaginative scarecrows are displayed everywhere.

Part of the festivities is the Pumpkin walk.  The lady who owns Jo-Ann's Deli carves 150 of the most incredible jack o lanterns which are displayed on a spooky side street.  It's magical.

Picasso jack o'lanterns.
