Merry Mahone Bay Scarecrow Festival
The Mahone Bay Scarecrow Festival & Antique Fair is a great way to put your ‘goodbye summer’ blues to bed and embrace autumn and all this colourful season brings. This is an annual fall event that has something for everyone. I attended this year with a good friend and we had a fabulous weekend exploring and enjoying all the festivities.
Decked Out & Dressed to the Nines
The drive alone, to and from Mahone Bay, was spectacular with the fall foliage wooing you with shades of glorious reds, oranges & yellows beautifying our little corner of the world. Once you arrive in Mahone Bay, you are in for a treat as the town is decked out & dressed to the nines decorated for an autumn celebration that lasts all weekend long from 250+ scarecrows, an antique fair, a quilt show, a craft show, a giant book sale, church tours, live entertainment, and ongoing family fun activities including a nighttime pumpkin path. Put Mahone Bay Scarecrow Festival & Antique Fair on your ‘Must Do’ list for 2019! It is a wonderful way to welcome fall.
Oh My Cod!
The seafood chowder is scrumptious at Oh My Cod! with generous portions of lobster, scallops, mussels, haddock & cod, along with diced potatoes, carrots & onion in a summer savoury creamed fish broth. My friend Lucie raved about the mussels in a yummy buttery, garlic & parsley white wine sauce. Find this great seafood restaurant at 567 Main Street.
