Captain Jack Sparrow, Beauty and the Beast, Minions and even The Gruffalo were all spotted in Rennington over the bank-holiday weekend, as the village held its annual scarecrow festival.
The popular three-day event, staged from Saturday to Monday, once again drew the crowds, as young and old poured in to see the colourful and eye-catching creations made by villagers.
Inventive and imaginative scenes included a game of bowls, a yoga session and an appearance from the cricket team.
Other characters to take centre stage included Donald Trump, Fred and Wilma Flintstone, ET and Mary Poppins.
There was a scarecrow quiz and treasure map with prizes, while other things to keep festival-goers busy included splat the rat and a sausage sizzle, while refreshments were served in the village hall.
Charities HospiceCare North Northumberland and dog-rescue centre SHAK had stalls at the event, while proceeds from the festival went towards the village hall.
