DURROW SCARECROW FESTIVAL NEWS
DURROW SCARECROW FESTIVAL:
This year’s festival is fast approaching and DDF are very excited about this year’s programme of events with lots of new additions including ‘Fittest Four’ and ‘Feirm Factor’ as well as a big treat for the ladies! The brochure for this year’s festival is currently being designed by our printer and will be available online later this month. Printed copies will be available locally nearer the time. Check out www.durrow.ie in the meantime for a listing of the Programme of Events for this year’s festival.
No doubt scarecrows are at the forefront of everyone’s mind. Please ensure that you have read this year’s entry guidelines and judging criteria ‘before’ starting to make your scarecrow. Leaflets explaining the criteria are available locally and information is also available on www.durrow.ie and on the Durrow Scarecrow Festival facebook page. A huge amount of time and effort has been put in by the judges in recent months to ensure that the judging this year is the fairest, most equitable and consistent it has ever been.
In addition to the usual prize fund, there is an additional €300 up for grabs for the ‘Best Residential Community’ which will see estates and streets compete against each other. A lovely financial boost for any residents association. Full details can be found on the aforementioned leaflet.
