Scores of scarecrows will invade a village over this bank holiday, at an annual event which is expected to attract flocks of people - and send other flocks flying.
The Martham Scarecow Festival takes place over Sunday, April 30 and Monday, May 1 and is hoping to see more than 120 of the figures put on display around the village.
This year the event is aiming for a record number of creative characters for visitors to find as they explore the village.
Now in its 10th year, the festival has seen figures of famous people, cartoon characters and animals, and this year will be no different.
The event is supported by the Great Yarmouth Tourism and Business Improvement Area (GYTABIA), which has pledged a £650 grant towards running costs.
