Meaford’s Scarecrow Invasion has started.

Marilyn Morris joined the Scarecrow Invasion 15 years ago when it was a three-day event that began the opening night of the Harvest Craft Show and involved about 25 business owners.

Morris, who is known as the “head scarecrow”, and her team of volunteers have set out 250 scarecrows everywhere in Meaford for the 18th Annual Scarecrow Invasion and Family Festival.

Those scarecrows will be on display until Thanksgiving weekend.
