Wray Village - The Original Scarecrow Festival 22nd April - 1st May 2006.

Wray Fair - Mayday 1st May 2006, Wray, Lancaster.


The theme for the 2006 Scarecrow Festival was the 2006 Football World Cup, with different areas of the village producing scarecrows fitting a theme from different parts of the world where countries or continents are involved in the soccer competition.


Dont be surprised to see a Mexican Wave or a Croatian Crow on your tour of the village, plus old favourites such as the unique GIANT SCARECROWS, the Speed Cam Cop and of course a collection of traditional scarecrows throughout the village.

This year saw a full scarecrow soccer match, complete with cheerleaders, film crew, footballers wives and even Her Majesty the Queen watching the match while celebrating her 80th Birthday!!


See if you can spot the Seagulls on the railings of Wray Endowed School - very creative use of a carrier bag, a few twists and some sticky vinyl!


WRAY FAIR - The original Wray Fair was mentioned in the Lancaster Gazette as far back as 1838, when it was descibed as ending in 'wanton brutality!' Happily things are a sight more friendly now, and this years fair saw crowds enjoying the day with great memories and a happy smile to take home, rather than a black eye!

If you missed the fun this year, make a note in your diary to visit Wray Scarecrow Festival and Wray Fair in 2007.
