Bridge Street Inn celebrates the Cambria Scarecrow Festival

Now in its eleventh year, the Cambria Scarecrow Festival has grown into a community-wide event with hundreds of scarecrows bowling, bathing, painting, pedaling, fishing and flying through Cambria, San Simeon and Harmony.

The Festival made its first appearance in 2009 with just thirty scarecrows. Since then, thanks to the ingenuity and hard work of local students, residents, and businesses, the numbers have grown into the hundreds.

Special thanks to the scarecrow artistic genius of Catherine and Carl.  Check out there creative endeavors at Catherine Greenup Visual.

Author Marianne Power has this to say about the Bridge Street Inn

“I cannot say enough good things about The Bridge Street Inn. It’s a magical place full of love. The bedrooms are spotless with old fashioned quilts on the bed and the garden is bursting with flowers. It’s like stepping back in time. The living room has guitars and books for people to use and the kitchen is immaculately clean and set up with free coffee and oatmeal for breakfast.Brandon, the manager, is kind, funny and helpful and really cares about everyone who walks through the door and cares that they see the best of the area. I’ve travelled the world and stayed in many places – both simple and fancy – and The Bridge Street Inn is one of my favourite spots. I will keep coming back.” -Marianne Power

Bridge Street Inn presents Records and Rye

The first annual records and rye party was a success. We celebrated the music of 2017 with vinyl and whiskey. Some of the highlights was the remastered 50th anniversary Sgt. Pepper Beatles record and the new LCD Soundsystem record. We honored Jessi Zazu formerly of Those Darlins and Chris Cornell formerly of Soundgarden and Audioslave. There was also an open mic period where guests shared vinyl favorites not necessarily released in 2017 but albums that helped make the year special. One record was the Star Wars soundtrack played in honor of Carrie Fischer. The Bridge Street Inn looks forwards to discovering the tunes of 2018.
