Fall Festival fun comes to downtown Salisbury
By Patrick L. Sullivan
SALISBURY — The splendid weather during the Fall Festival made for good scarecrow viewing. The Woodland restaurant’s Occupy Wall Street, with its topical theme, was the subject of considerable overheard conversation over the weekend. The scarecrow won first place in the business category.
Sarah Campbell’s “Rock Star?” (first place in the individual category) benefitted from its placement in the busy area amid the vendors’ booths on Main Street, with visitors posing for snapshots in front of it.
And Elvia Gignoux’s “Wicked” (tied for third place in the individual category) cast a baleful eye on the LaBonne’s parking lot late Sunday afternoon.
Although all the scarecrows were creative and lovely, some earned top honors in the voting.
