The Greater Orange Area Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony to kick off the Scarecrow Festival at Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center.

Each year, Shangri La hosts the largest Scarecrow Festival in Texas, with dozens of  hand-crafted scarecrows displayed throughout the Gardens. Created by community organizations, businesses, schools, and families, scarecrow designs range from funny, to clever, to wacky and weird! For sure, no two scarecrows are ever the same.

The Scarecrow Festival runs until Nov. 1.  For more information call (409) 670-9113.
