The success of the inaugural Easter Fayre and Scarecrow Festival run in 2012 on another of Argyll’s secret places, the glorious Kilberry peninsula by the Ormsary & District Social Club has copper-fastened a second event.
The Social Club is hosting its second festival over the weekend of 30th March to 1st April.
Scarecrows will be displayed all along the B8024 from Saturday 30th March – and if last year was anything to go by, they will be a delight. You have to suspect everything you see. It may not be what it seems. You have to look absolutely everywhere along the roadside. Some of the scarecrows will be in your face but some will be retiring, self-effacing and watching you.
Then, on Monday 1st April in Ormsary Hall between 12 noon and 4.00pm there will be a Craft Fayre, an Easter Egg Hunt and other children’s activities – along with tea, coffee, soup and home baking – and the winner of the Scarecrow competition will be announced. That is bound to be a horrendously difficult decision. Last year – the first – was full of imagination, invention, gothic horrors and gentle delights.
The event’s a winner. Take the drive and make the Fayre.
