Traditional Summer Fayre welcomes scarecrow creations.
Scarecrows are set to greet visitors to the Traditional Summer Fayre at Meridian Park Showground, Cleethorpes on Monday, August 27, as organisers announce a competition to find the best dressed scarecrow creation.
The family event also includes a competition to find the most amusing fruit n’ vegetable product in addition to arts and sports events, inflatable rides, street theatre and stalls for visitors to browse.
Organisers are appealing to families and children to get their creative juices flowing by building or crafting scarecrows that will catch the eye of the judges from Earthbound Misfits.
Mark Atkinson, from Earthbound Misfits, said: “We have our very own scarecrow walkabout act so feel we are extremely qualified to be judging this competition. Earthbound Misfits will be entertaining visitors on the day and the act has fooled many a person – often when they don’t realise if we’re real or not!”
Entrants must ensure their scarecrow is submitted to the competition no later than 2pm on the day so judging can take place before the winner will be announced.
The other competition taking place on the day is for green-fingered growers who can submit their most amusing vegetable or fruit into a competition that will be judged by local horticultural business Green Futures. To enter this competition entrants are invited to either bring along a photograph of their product, ensuring they are also in the shot, or simply submit the vegetable or fruit on the day, also ensuring it is entered by 2pm. Green Futures will be donating a vegetable box as a prize for the winning entry.
Refreshments will be available to purchase at the event, but pic-nics can also be brought into the grounds. Entry is £1 per person.
The event is organised by North East Lincolnshire Council’s arts and sports development teams and runs from 11am to 4pm.
