Scarecrows return to Steveston Village
The Steveston Scarecrow Crawl has returned to the fishing village.
The third annual event, organized by the Steveston Merchants Association, features over 60 scarecrows positioned throughout the business district.
Each design—from the nautical to the whimsical—reflects the personality of participating businesses.
Visitors are welcome to pose for photographs with the scarecrows—new ones are appearing every day.
On Sunday, Oct. 14 from 1 to 3 p.m. a special event takes place. The Steveston Scarecrow Hayday, held at Fisherman’s Park in front of the Gulf of Georgia Cannery, features live music, pumpkin rolling, sack races and a children’s pie-eating contest.
The Steveston Merchants Association—committed to driving business to the village year-round—introduced the crawl in 2010 as a way to draw people into the Steveston during the fall. The first event was such a success that it has now become an annual celebration.
The scarecrows will be on display until the end of the month.
