Build A Scarecrow Day
The USA’s first Saturday in July is Build a Scarecrow Day. This is a fun and unique festival. Farmers create scarecrows from special human-shaped figures to scare birds away from their crows. They are typically made of straw and covered in old clothes. These scarecrows can be placed in the fields once they are complete.
This day is celebrated by people who gather to make scarecrows and celebrate autumn’s arrival. This festival is not only celebrated in the USA for over a century but it is also becoming more popular internationally.
Since 1990, Build a scarecrow Day is celebrated in rural areas of the United Kingdom. It is a great opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate the changing seasons in a unique manner. Even competitions are held to determine who makes the scariest scarecrow.
