Kirkhamgate Scarecrow Festival

Today on the recommendation of a friend we took the boys to Kirkhamgate Scarecrow Festival. It is really pretty local to us so I can't believe I have never heard of it before.

The boys were so excited(so was I to be honest) so as soon we had parked up we went to find our first scarecrows while Phil went off to grab a map.  The theme was music and there were some brilliant displays to see, I can't possibly post photos of them all! I absolutely love that so much of the village got involved in making scarecrows and that so many people turned out to see them from families to couples young and old to teenagers.
I have to admit my favourites were definitely the Agadoo scarecrows and Miley Cyrus on her wrecking ball. There were lots of nursery rhyme themed ones for the littlies too and the boys enjoyed working out what they were.
