WRAY FAIR - Fair Day 6th May. 
Main Fair day is scheduled this year for Monday 6th May. This is a Bank Holiday so let's hope that the sun will be shining. The main fair is situated on the school field in the centre of Wray village. Access points to the field will be signposted from the car parks and there will be marshals in High Viz vests at various locations to guide/assist you if required.  The main field consists of a central arena with PA system announcing the events and a varied selection of stalls and attractions positioned around the remainder of the field. There are large marquees containing craft stalls, displays and the excellent catering provided by the village institute


The Vintage Market : Sunday 5th May 2013 (11am - 4pm)
This event was introduced to the festival in 2012 and was very succesful. Hence its ressurection in 2013. The market attracts traders in vintage items (These are technically items over 25 years old) including clothes, ornaments accessories and even furniture. If you're are looking to buy these kind of items then this is the perfect small market. You never know you might pick up a bargain. If you are a vintage trader then this is a good venue and with the attraction of the scarecrows (and this year the classic vehicles) we expect a decent number of visitors. There is no charge for visitors to enter the field or marquees on the day (£1.50 per car for all day parking is the only charge) so why not pop along for a browse. The market opens to visitors between 11am and 4pm

Classic Vehicles 
This year the Vintage Market will be accompanied on the field by a display of classic vehicles. This will include Tractors, Military Vehicles, TVR's,  Lotuses, Mini's, Classic Motorcycles and a few others.
