Last weekend Mike and I decided to drive out to Mahone Bay to check out the town’s annual Scarecrow Festival. Boasting over 150 life-size scarecrows, the festival was a pit stop for not only this year’s Amazing Race Canada, but thousands of Nova Scotians. There was a great variety of scarecrows, from fishermen to witches to politicians and royals. While we were there we also checked out some amazing local shops, like Peacocks Antique & Vintage, an adorable vintage shop full of clothing circa the1930s and 1920s. We also participated in a little food tourism, eating homemade oktoberfest sausage from a street vendor and splitting some cheesecake at the Biscuit Eater Cafe and Bookstore. All in all, it was the perfect fall adventure.
