Scarecrows are essential part of the Cherry Festival in Žagarė.There, on the bank of the Švėtė River, a homestead of folk artist Aušra Petrauskienė, is situated. The scarecrows have found a place to stay in a house called “The Factory of Scarecrows”. It is a fascinating kingdom of scarecrows, where different characters are created.
