This past long weekend the "paparazzi" descended on Mahone Bay, why? They were there, in the usually peaceful picturesque tourist town, to capture shots of celebrities, super models, seasoned criminals (pirates), and noted citizens of the historic town. The streets were crammed with tourists vying with a multitude of photographers to catch a glimpse of the honored guests.
Why were all these folks in Mahone Bay? Every year there is a Scarecrow Festival there in early October and this was the weekend that the inhabitants of the town had decided to do a promotional photo shoot for future advertising of the festival. What a treat to have a sneak peak at the fantastic creations - be sure to make it down to Mahone Bay and enjoy the festivities this October. We had a blast and I'm sure you will too.
