While conspiracy rattled Deepwater during last year’s Scarecrow and Wool Festival following the mysterious disappearance and alleged kidnapping of overstuffed local authority Constable Scarecrow, festival coordinator Julie Watt said the mystery has not hindered the 2014 festival promising to top last year.

While Mrs Watt said she was disappointed to report that Constable Scarecrow’s disappearance remains largely unsolved, she will be coordinating a crack team of scarecrows for the coming festival on the lookout for any attempt at renewed foul play.

As the popular regional event draws near, festival committee members are putting the final touches on a jam-packed schedule showcasing a full contingent of singers and live entertainment acts anticipating a non-stop entertainment experience throughout the festival. 

With all new acts coming to this year’s festival Mrs Watt said the festival has been growing consistently over previous years, drawing attendees from across the region and the state.

“It’s getting bigger and bigger,” she said.

With attractions highlighting the best in local and regional industry and produce, Deepwater is gearing up for the festive season set to fall on Halloween. The inaugural Festival Ball at the Deepwater School of Arts will be a highlight of the event, which runs  from Friday evening, October 31 from 5-10pm and all day Saturday, November 1, at the Deepwater Oval.
