For 10 days, up to 1st May, Wray Village in Lancashire holds the Scarecrow Festival. Wray is north east of Lancaster on the A683 road. This year’s theme was “Traditional Tales”, but there were one or two topical figures displayed too. As well as the static scarecrows, they also have the Giant Scarecrow Parade!
There are any number of events and attractions during the festival period such as: photo exhibitions, live music, 10k road race, Farmer’s Market, 100k cycle race, Car Boot Sale, Maypole Dancing, a funfair, a Vintage & Collector’s Fair, Classic Cars & Bikes Show, Down the River Ball Race, Songs of Praise at the Holy Trinity Church, Bus(k) stop music, a Fell Race, Viking’s Display, chainsaw carving, Trials Bike display, Football Freestyle, Dog Agility, Rare Breeds plus craft and other stalls.
There were delicious teas served in the Village Hall. Entrance to the Wray Fair on the 1st of May was £1.50 for pensioners. We saw lots – but not everything- so we will definitely be returning next year!
