The Piedmont Harvest Festival is Sunday, September 19 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Piedmont Park. There will be carnival games, temporary tattoo stations, a cake hop, a scarecrow silent auction, snow-cones, and more. The event raises fund for the Piedmont schools.
The theme for the scarecrow silent auction at the festival is “Fantastic Creatures of Animation.” This treasured tradition is a great project for a family, class, or organization. Scarecrows are usually put together in a backyard, a park, or school playground and they need to be delivered to Piedmont Park on the morning of the festival.
Think beyond straw; scarecrows can be made of any material. Have a Superman costume? Stuff it and make a head out of papier-mache! You don’t need to be an engineer to make a scarecrow and the kids love to participate. Scarecrows make fantastic Halloween decor!
Volunteers are also sought to bake or donate treats for the popular cake hop and/or to work on the day of the event. There are volunteer opportunities for middle school and high school students and adults alike. Please email Amber Brumfiel (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to make a scarecrow, donate a baked good, or volunteer on the day of the event.
