Visitor Tips and News About Joe's Scarecrows
Joe's scarecrows are no longer there. He died last year and the wife dug them all up. But a few were tranplanted to an ice cream stand south of Cheticamp, just north of the post office, and north of Ole Joe's place.[joe houten, 09/05/2012]
Scarecrows galore. Must see, just because it's so random and sweet. On the west side of Cape Breton Island along Cabot Trail.[Marcy, 08/26/2010]
This is definitely unlike any other attraction we have ever seen. Dozens of scarecrows with Halloween masks for faces and dressed in various outfits stand in semicircles next to a small shop near Cheticamp in Acadia, Nova Scotia. Each scarecrow bears an index card with the scarecrow's description. Truly memorable and more than a bit disconcerting - a wonderful combination.[Andy Jones, 08/10/2002]
