A quiet market town will once again be overrun by a parade of ingenious and imaginative scarecrows.
This year’s Halesworth Scarecrow Festival will return on Saturday, October 20 and run until Saturday October 27.
The much loved event is now in its ninth year and is set to attract hundreds of people to the town during the half-term school holidays.
Last year more than 70 scarecrows were displayed by local businesses down the Thoroughfare, around Market Place and down to Angel Link.
Organiser Karen Prime hopes this year’s event will be “bigger and better” than ever before and added: “It’s a must do event for October half-term.”
