Mason Sage took home first place in the scarecrow contest October 18th, during the 18th annual Auburn Community Festival. This festival is a "Harvest Festival" with tons of fun for kids and adults. You and your family can enjoy seeing over 25 displays from local artists, pumpkin painting and a costume contest. Other entertainment includes live music from the local bands, pumpkin growing contests, recipe contests and walking around looking at the scarecrows. The largest pumpkin this year weighed in at over 1,000 pounds. This was just one of the many things happening this fall in the small town of Auburn. An Indian Pow Wow, an amazing display of Indian culture was just walking distance from the Community Festival.
Mason Sage took home first place with "The Chill Crows", A band of automated hippy scarecrows that play instruments. One hippy scarecrow tapped his foot and played the drums, while another swung to the beat of the music while playing the guitar.
