Wray Scarecrow Festival

The last few years we’ve been attending Wray scarecrow festival. It usually happens the last week in April. We started going because the festival had a Maypole and it became our way to celebrate Beltane.

However, this year was the first year we didn’t go and I probably don’t think I’ll be going again. Every year there seems to be less and less people participating, then the scarecrows were getting reused and eventually I decided it wasn’t worth the hour drive there to see something I saw the year before.

I did check out a video on Youtube from this year and I saw the same old scarecrows being shown off again.

I actually found another scarecrow festival to go to this year and was sadly disappointed when I saw only about five houses had decorated for it. As I said, I go to these around Beltane to celebrate and have fun, which there’s also a more local scarecrow festival around Lammas time. I like the small village community spirit, keeping the old traditions alive but unfortunately it seems to be dying out more and more.

Anyway, I still wanted to share some of the photos I’ve collected because they are pretty cool and maybe if you’ve never been to a scarecrow festival before you might like to see them.

I always seem to find a cat or two no matter where I go.

Blessed Be )O(
