Giant Scarecrows Parade

WRAY, 04 May 2018 – The 25th annual Wray Scarecrow Festival and Fair at Wray in Lancashire. More than 150 scarecrows adorn viallage homes and properties, many following this year’s ‘Lights, Camera, Action’ theme. The traditional giant scarecrow parade was followed by a gathering of 298 villagers who wore make up, patched trousers and straw hair in an attempt to achieve the world record for the largest number of people dressed as scarecrows. Christopher Thomond for The Guardian.

The Giants Scarecrows Parade takes place each year on the Friday evening (~6.30pm) before the Bank Holiday Monday.

The Parade starts at Gars End (see map) and finishes at Bridge House Tea Rooms.

It is usually followed by music and a party open to all! Includes prize giving for the best scarecrows.
