The much loved Garstang Scarecrow Festival returned once again this weekend and featured over 100 imaginative scarecrows which delighted both locals and visitors. 

Alongside the creative displays, attendees enjoyed a lively lineup of entertainment, unique eateries, a children’s funfair, and an array of stalls and attractions.
