Wartime music, dancing, vehicles, displays and costumes attracted thousands of visitors to Stoke Bruerne over the weekend.
The Friends of the Canal Museum and village residents organised the Village at War Weekend which has won a number of awards over the years.
The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight made a dramatic Spitfire flypast on both days and Saturday was also graced by a Dakota aircraft. There was also an unscheduled flyby by the Red Arrows on Sunday.
The event included living history groups and individual re-enactors dressed as policemen, spivs, air raid wardens, American GIs, the Free French and Land Army girls.
Among the performers was Paul Casper who sings and plays as George Formby.
Wartime-style food including spam sandwiches and bread and dripping was on offer and the Northampton Home Guard and Army Cadet Force were on parade.
The whole village joined in with the event including putting on a fashion parade at the church, tea dances in the village hall and the Nippy Tea Rooms in the village school.
There were also displays in the museum about the important role the canals played in both world wars.
