Pirates, a maniacal Mad Hatter and a grinning Cheshire Cat are among the creations dotting downtown sidewalks, streets and open lots in Cambria and San Simeon.
Hundreds of the sculptures are on display through the month of October as part of the 14th annual Cambria Scarecrow Festival, which includes sidewalk displays of individual sculptures as well as larger, themed displays.
“What started as a small festival with just 30 scarecrows has turned into a month-long celebration featuring 500 scarecrows made by local businesses, students and residents,” USA Today writer Katie Jackson wrote Aug. 29. “Many of the scarecrows are made of recycled materials so they’re as sustainable as they are scary (or funny).”
“Over the years,” organizers said, “the festival has grown into one of the most unique festivals of hand-crafted folk art in the U.S., drawing thousands of visitors from around the world.”
According to festival President Paulla Ufferheide, some of this year’s exhibits include a display honoring area nonprofit organizations, a group of pirates, art in an outdoor museum setting and a giant pumpkin eater chasing a field full of pumpkin scarecrows.
Some of the largest displays in Cambria are the Open Air Art Museum, located near the Shell Station at 589 Main St.; Cambria Recycles Challenge, in front of Cambria Center for the Arts at 1350 Main St., and Non-profits of Cambria, in front of Santa Rosa Catholic Church at 1174 Main St.
Another big exhibit is the Pirates Cove group, located next to San Simeon Bar and Grill, 9520 Castillo Drive in San Simeon.
