The annual Goose Fair is returning to the west Devon town of Tavistock today.
The event dates back to the early 12th century when farmers would drive their Christmas geese to the market.
Now, geese and other livestock still play a big part in the fair, but there will also be stalls and fairground rides.
Motorists are advised to expect traffic delays.
There are currently road closures on the A386 Plymouth Road between A390 and Dolvin Road, Abbey Bridge and Chapel Street; until 7am on Thursday, 12 October. A one-way traffic system is also in place until 10am.

Horrified RSPCA workers are appealing for information after they discovered the mutilated body of a dead cat.
The animal - which had been skinned - was found with broken bones and bound by twine, lying behind a multi-storey car park in Tavistock.
The cat was found by a member of the public outside the Cooperative car park at 8:30am on February 27, and the charity were immediately called for help.
RSPCA inspector Lewis Taylor attended the grim scene.
This was a very strange and disturbing incident and we would really like to get to the bottom of what happened to this poor cat.
It looks like they may have been a black cat from the fur that you can see but the body has been so badly ripped apart that sadly it’s really hard to tell.
A vet has confirmed that they suffered broken bones and then were skinned and tied up, although the tying up was likely to have happened after they died as the rope was clean and loose.
