Scarecrow-6

Everything is (STR)AWesome – Durrow Scarecrow Festival

Written by Grant Mills on . Posted in Art, European Bazaar, Festivals, Home, Photography, Society, Travel

The European Bazaar project has now been underway for 4 months. Sadly it has been set against the distressing backdrop of the twin Malaysia disasters, the international apathy toward the massacres in Gaza and the political collateral damage of the war in the Ukraine.

And it’s times like these that it is is easy to forget that we do know how to be nice to one another.

That’s why I can now tell you that if your faith in humanity is getting a little thin, then you need to visit a little scarecrow festival in the heart of Ireland.

Chap Olympics-35

Tweed and the Face Weasel – Surrealists sports at the Chap Olympiad

‘And I’m disqualifying that team for an Americanish display of mutual congratulation – the High Five. Sirs, you should know better.’ – Judge, MC, and executioner.

The Chap Olympiad is a strange place to discover a revolution. It is also likely the only festival that you’ll hear the exclamation, ‘Syphilis? Marvelous!’ from a man wearing a dead bat as a broach.
