this IS Fall in Nova Scotia!
David’s parents live just on the outskirt of the famous town of Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. You can actually see the 3 famous churches that are on so many picture postcards from their place. Fall in Nova Scotia always means crispy cool mornings and nights, clear blue skies and warm sunshine, colored leaves, bright colored mums, warm apple cider, cornstalks, pumpkins and scarecrows… ahhhh…. these are the sights and smells that are truly Fall in Nova Scotia Canada.
Well it just so happens that our trip is when the Annual Scarecrow Festival & Antique Fair is in Mahone Bay. You can stroll through the quaint little town and see over 150 scarecrows ( even ones that were featured on CTV’s Amazing Race Canada) Did you know that THE AMAZING RACE came through Mahone Bay and Lunenburg? I didn’t! But then we’ve been living away. I plan to track down that episode and watch it!! Anyway…
You can see scarecrows, enjoy the antique fair, and one of the highlights of the weekend…a stroll through the Candelit Pumpkin Path, with a cup of Apple Cider of course. All weekend there is lots of great music and food! I LOVE things like this so of course we had to go!
Here are some pics of our day at the Scarecrow Festival!
To start the tour…David’s parents scarecrows! Of course a Bride & Groom would be the likely choice for this wedding weekend!
