Wangaratta Chronicle - - News -

THE fourth an­nual Scare­crows, Sausages and Shi­raz fes­ti­val will be held at Pfeif­fer Wines in Wah­gun­yah this week­end.

Early in the year the win­ery asks the com­mu­nity for their help to pro­tect its vine­yard by mak­ing scare­crows which will pro­tect its grapes from birds.

Pfeif­fer Wines’ Kylie Bar­ton said the re­sponse this year had been over­whelm­ing, with scare­crows re­ceived from 34 dif­fer­ent schools and or­gan­i­sa­tions, in­clud­ing lo­cal en­trants Car­rara­gar­mungee Pri­mary School.

Judg­ing will take place on Sun­day with win­ners an­nounced at 3pm and prizes awarded for Best Scare­crow, Best School Scare­crow, Best Busi­ness/ Or­gan­i­sa­tion Scare­crow, Peo­ple’s Choice Award and Best Dressed Liv­ing Scare­crow.

There will also be en­ter­tain­ment in­clud­ing live mu­sic with Richard Perso from 12.30pm un­til 3.30pm, home­made sausages from King Val­ley bar­be­cue and more, on Satur­day and Sun­day.
