Once again, the unconventional town of Cambria is hosting its annual month-long scarecrow festival in San Luis Obispo County—bringing out the kid in everyone.
In its sixth year, hundreds of offbeat characters line Cambria's east and west village streets, front the hotels on Moonstone Beach Drive, and stretch along the businesses in the pastoral region of San Simeon.
Cambria, hard hit by the water shortage, brings a timely message to the scores of ogling slocals and visitors via their mischievous scarecrows: Save water!
The sage advice—drink more wine and beer instead of water, wash your hair with Chablis, bathe or shower with a friend—makes perfect sense.
Water shortage or not, October calls for a celebration doused in great community spirit.
