Absolutely lovely, a lot of work goes into these events, there is one similar to this at a village just outside Glastonbury in Somerset, Many people make up scarecrows and sit them around the village it's a real fun thing..

The imagination, the inventiveness that goes into these scarecrows! I could not pick a favorite--they are all amazing.
Canal boats with gardens aboard? Brilliant!
Thank you for sharing these photos. What a fascinating festival!
It is a lovely Fest & all that happens in the village is free to see & look around pretty much The main Festival is best booked in advance as it sells out most years now & the Pubs in the Village are a must visit if there;) as a good pint can do wonders:)
