Make plans to see the amazing Scarecrowfest displays now through November 7 throughout Solvang and the Santa Ynez Valley! There’s over 100 creative ‘crows’ in Solvang alone—and you can vote on your favorites as part of the contest. Scarecrowfest ballots are available at the Solvang Visitors Center (1639 Copenhagen Drive) and feature maps to direct you around town. Place your votes in ballot boxes scattered about the village in six different categories this year: “Best Scarecrow Photo Op,” “Best Use of Recycled Materials,” “Best Use of Business Theme,” “Most Danish,” “Spookiest and “Most Humorous”. Winners will be announced in mid-November.
Meanwhile, remember that 10/19/16 is Solvang Third Wednesday with plenty of deals at local merchants including boutiques of all sorts, restaurants and gourmet food purveyors; free admission to the Wildling Museum; the weekly Santa Barbara Certified Farmers Market; and the best way to add some cheer, the popular Solvang Third Wednesday Wine & Beer Walk. Plus, experience Third Wednesday deals at some of Solvang’s best hotels, like 20% off of their night’s stay (with a qualifying stay).
