Wray Scarecrow Festival

A really lovely event that I enjoy most years  is Wray Scarecrow Festival, which wrapped up today with the very popular fair. Just the sort of assignment in my press days that I’d have enjoyed. My visit was brief, so can’t really do the scarecrows justice but here’s just a few snaps to illustrate the event…

Flying in for the festival’s magic theme.

Sleeping Beauty (I think) waiting for her Prince.

Tommy Cooper scarecrow looking a little creepy!

A popular choice; I spotted several Pinocchios at Wray Scarecrow Festival.

Wizards round every corner.

Some scarecrows almost seem to come alive.

Magic was the theme of this year’s scarecrow festival.

The dog agility display drew a big crowd.


Dog and owner work together and at such speed, not easy to photograph!
