Scarecrow Festival

 
Okay - how fun is this?  On September 15, Creative Arts, with assistance from the Kiwanis Club, offered a free class, led by Glendora Artist Cathy Manzo, where people could make their own scrarecrows.  Unfortunately, it appears that I'm the only one in Sierra Madre who didn't realize this was happening.  (This is not surprising.  I seem to miss a lot.) 

Anywho, the Scarecrow Festival contest is on, and these whimsical fellas (and gals) have been popping up all over town.  The scarecrows will be displayed all month, but the judging is going on from October 1st through 4th.  I've snapped a few pics, to share with you.

Today's offering, brought to you by Sierra Fitness, in the heart of downtown, shows us that with the right equipment, attire, and hydration, fitness is an attainable goal for one and all, not just for those of us with brains (cue the Wizard of Oz music...).

  3. Love the idea of a scarecrow making class! And love the scarecrow, though I'm afraid I'll never have biceps like that, no matter how many months of gym membership I buy!:)
