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 2015 festival will run from Oct. 14-Nov. 7 at Shangri La Botanical Gardens and Nature Center.

The Scarecrow Festival is a great way to celebrate the changing season and see what the community creates with repurposed and recycleable materials plus a heap of imagination.

In this friendly competition, visitors are asked to vote for their favorite Scarecrow.  The winners will be awarded a special prize on Nov. 7, at Autumn Fair.  Scarecrow Festival 2015 is fun for children of all ages.
