The 14th annual Wanatah, Indiana Scarecrow Festival took place last weekend. Wanatah is a town of about 1000 people in LaPorte County, Indiana, about 20 miles from Michigan City. The town is named after the Potawatomi Indiana Chief and means "knee deep in mud" - the town was built on a large marsh turned into farmland.

The scarecrow festival celebrates the harvest and for a town of 1000, they really had a crowd. The population must have quadrupled on Saturday during the parade.
