The Scarecrow Invasion and Family Festival parade and festival committees are finalizing plans for the annual apple pie contest, parade on Sykes Street, and family festival on Friday, October 4th.
Freshly baked apple pies need to be dropped off for judging at the Church of Nazarene between 1 and 3 p.m. Two categories: young bakers (ages 8-11) and traditional. Contest is open to all residents of the Municipality of Meaford.
The parade starts at 6 p.m. sharp.
The family festival follows at Rotary Harbour Pavilion with Bayshore Broadcasting emcee Jon Zagrodnik and popular local performer Allan Johnson. Look for the sensational Owen Sound fire-throwing majorettes, Klash the Clown, children’s bouncers, bean bag toss, hockey shot, and Meaford Fire Department fire truck. Winners of the apple pie contest, scarecrow colouring contest, and the photo competition will be announced during the festival.
