Annual Scarecrow Festival


-- The weather's getting a bit cooler. It's a sure sign fall is here. Another sign is scores of scarecrows lining the streets of downtown Wilmington.

The third annual Cape Fear Scarecrow Festival begins this weekend.  Participants tend to have really unique ideas when it comes to their creations.

The Downtown Business Alliance is organizing the event. They hope the scarecrows will add some color to downtown.

You can see the scarecrows starting Saturday, September 30 throughout downtown. The festival runs through November 4.
