Kimbolton Sculpture Festival

This weekend we went to a tiny town's  domain (city park of sorts) for the 
Kimbolton Sculpture Festival. 

Being such a small town (according to this page, the population is under 1,500) I really didn't expect more than a smattering of home-made-from-scrap pieces and lots of room to look and wander about.

But, as we got close to town,  I was amazed to see signs that warned of  queues (long lines) of cars. It seems the festival was a complete success with over 2000 visitors in attendance and lots of sculptures and sellers!

These are a few of the sculptures and I'll share more later.

That's just the kind of ride-on lawn mower I could afford - if I had a lawn!

I've never heard of this festival in the wee town where my father was born around 1919. Thanks for sharing. The sculptures are amazing. I love the bike/mower too.... so clever.

Much to see here! My very favorite is the metal eagle - wow, it took some creativity to put the little part to the shape of a flying bird! Was fun showing the All Season-ers around here. Many thnaks and have a great week!

Those sculptures would be amazing and beautiful if they were displayed in a huge city! But to think of this festival being in a tiny town like that is mind-boggling. Somebody there knows what they are doing to put this together.
