Lily (6) and Olive (3) Bentley, of Arrowtown, sit next to
their scarecrow Bella after the Arrowtown Autumn Festival's
scarecrow competition yesterday. The festival opened on
Thursday evening and is this year celebrating its 30th
Bella was made from spare materials in the family's cupboards
and earned the girls a highly-commended award.
Last night the Athenaeum Hall hosted a pearl ball and this
weekend is packed with activities such as the festival parade
and the pie and pint festival.
