An article in the San Luis Obispo News Tribune appeared on Sept. 6 with the following headline: “Scarecrows are coming to SLO County this fall despite COVID. Here’s what to expect”
Here is a small snippet from the article (and don’t forget to watch the video too!)
WHAT’S IN STORE FOR CAMBRIA SCARECROW FESTIVAL?
Unlike other events where people tend to cluster together in confined areas, the Scarecrow Festival invites attendees to stay in their own small groups as they walk or drive throughout Cambria and San Simeon to see the displays, organizers said.
Scarecrow Festival organizers say they’re minimizing the number of sculptures and displays on sidewalks, to help maintain social distancing and avoid conflicting with restaurant parklets.
Volunteers will be masked, and if they’re sick, they’re required to stay home.
During the runup to the Scarecrow Festival, “We asked our volunteers not to come to the studio, storage units or be at our workshop if they weren’t vaccinated,” said Christine Fischer, a vice president on the festival board of directors.
