Deepwater Scarecrow

Wool Festival 

Fun for all the Family

Welcome to the
Scarecrow & Wool Festival
"Dubbin in Deepwater"

Dubbin in Deepwater has

been CANCELLED for the

2014 Festival

some of whom travelled

distances especially for

the advertised event.

Unfortunately some

disappointed visitors took

it upon themselves to

abuse our volunteers!

It was a sad turn of
