Scarecrow Festival 2016

Scarecrow Festival 2016

Friends of Waterloo Seafront Gardens held their 8th Annual Scarecrow Festival on Saturday 17th September 2016 at Marine Garden. It was our most successful Festival to date: we estimate that over a thousand people came along on the day and we raised over £1300 for our funds.

The weather on the day was fantastic and provided the icing on the cake! We brought back regular attractions from previous years such as the miniature train ride, facepainting, book, plant, drink and cake stalls, plus various games which proved as popular as ever. Also very popular with the children were the Punch and Judy show and Write Blend Storytellers. This year we had two brand new attractions: a fantastic bouncy castle with slide, plus a selection of varied craft stalls.

The Performance Area returned for the second year running and we were once more treated to a number of great acts, including the Signing Choir from Crosby High School, Taekwondo demonstration from Train Hard Taekwondo, singing/dancing from Stage Door Theatre School , demonstrations from the Maghull Handbell Ringers, plus Dave ‘Fingers’ Williams displaying his piano skills.

The quality of Scarecrows in the competition this year was excellent and all were on our ‘Olympic’ theme. After studying all the entries, our judges Cllrs Paul Cummins and Veronica Webster awarded first place to ‘Team GB’ by Erin and Rubie; second place to ‘Jonnie Peacock’ by Lismore boys, Currys and Cal; and third place to ‘Synchronised Swimmers’ by Team Swainbank.

There are way too many people to thank individually for their contribution to the success of the day, but we would like to mention the people who came along to help us in the morning: to Friends of Bowersdale Park and Friends of Old Christ Church, plus a number of individual volunteers, all of whom made the onerous task of setting up the event easier for us. Also to Friends of Moorside Park for the loan of some much needed extra tables, and Heather Currie for being our official photographer for the day.

With thanks to Heather Currie for pictures
