What a difference a year makes.

Shangri La has announced the return of the annual Scarecrow Festival from Oct. 9 – Nov. 3, 2018.

The event was canceled last year after the gardens suffered severe damage during the stop known as Harvey.

“While we could not celebrate Scarecrow Festival last year due to flood damage from Tropical Storm Harvey, we are counting on you to help us make this year a success,” a press release stated.

Winners will be announced on November 3, 2018, at Autumn Fair.
