FUN and games were the order of the day at the Tolga Scarecrow Festival on Saturday.
The community came together at the Atherton Showgrounds to enjoy the many market stalls, entertainment, and, of course, the famous scarecrow-making competition. Old-fashioned games drew a big crowd with sugar cane javelin, sack races, bale run, three-legged races, and egg and spoon races.
Adults and children joined in the fun on the day wearing their best farming gear or dressed as a scarecrow, with Maria McPherson judged the winner of the Festival’s Best Costume Junior.
