A big weekend of festivals will see Wray scarecrows, bicycles and wheelbarrows bring fun to the Lancaster area.

Festival events include tonight’s classic bike night in the tearooms, a Giant Scarecrow Parade tomorrow (May 1), a vintage market and classic vehicle show on Sunday at 10am, and Monday’s May Fair and Fell Race.

The main fair is situated on the school field in the centre of Wray village.

Scorton Bikes and Barrows Festival is also back this weekend for its fifth year, an event where Scorton will be donned with decorated bicycles and wheelbarrows.

The Bikes and Barrows Festival features a music festival, dog show, sheep racing, food and craft fair, children’s games, treasure trails, 10k run, family cycle rides, Rose Queen day, wheelbarrow racing, cream teas, art festival, brass band concert and morris dancing.

Blackpool Brass Band will travel to St Peter’s Church for a one-night show as part of this year’s festival, to be held at the local parish church at 7.30pm on Saturday.

Tickets are £4 in advance (from Scorton Spar) or £5 at the door on the night. The entry fee includes a glass of wine.
