This weekend the lovely East Yorkshire village of Skidby holds it 7th Annual Scarecrow Festival. This is always a popular event and this year is no exception.


Yesterday I spent a lovely couple of hours strolling round some of the wonderfully inventive creations that had been lovingly made by the fabulously talented villagers.

I met celebrities ………. FullSizeRender (15)FullSizeRender (16)FullSizeRender (19)


Superman, Harry Potter and Humpty Dumpty ……….


And noticed a few rather suspicious characters who were perched rather precariously on ladders ………..


Though the fireman was doing a sterling job rescuing the elderly lady ………

There were Troll Princesses, fiery dragons, robots and Daleks …………



Liz and Dave, Pat and Jean and all the other Committee members were working hard, manning the Tombola and selling souvenirs. And the kitchen was busy serving tea, coffee, cool drinks and delicious home-baked cakes etc.


And, even though I am afraid of birds, I managed to take a photo of these beautiful birds of prey ……part of the Falconry display on the Village Green ………

And the very clever and amusing ‘LOVEcrow’ (as opposed to SCAREcrow ) …………

So, once again, this marvellous Festival has proved to be a great success …….

If you are in the area, you still have time to pop along and enjoy all the exhibits and other attractions.

But, if you can’t come along this time ….there is always next year.  No doubt I will be posting another article in 2018 ….at least, I hope so !

    Correct me if I am wrong, but wasnt this Scarecrow Festival featured on Countryfile possibly last year or previous? Such imagination and hard work must have gone into design and eventing. Although the Troll Princess frightened me, it is my favourite. Just hope they dont come to life like Wurzel did. xx
