Santa Ynez Valley Scarecrow Fest
The month-long Santa Ynez Valley Scarecrow Fest encourages locals to play, stay and enjoy the scarecrows, all of which are handcrafted by local businesses, individuals and school organizations competing for their town’s “Best Scarecrow” title and ultimately the “2016 Harvest Cup: Best in the Valley” title. | Various locations throughout Santa Ynez Valley, syvscarecrows.com.
