Street Party

Our town had a lovely street party the other week. The High Street was closed off so no traffic. They had stalls set up selling gorgeous trinkets and food stands. They also had three stages where various local bands and entertainers could get up on and perform.




The day started with a boat race. This was mad with pairs of people running up the road in boats.


After that it was time for Little Miss to practice her circus skills.




Well she started with one hoop, then ended up with three going round and everyone watching and admiring her.


Time for face painting for Little Miss and a small butterfly for me.




Then it was off to check out the hog roast, yummy. Glass of Pimms, chips and popcorn were also consumed.


A quick look around the stalls and a couple of buys.





Then it was time to go home.


What a lovely day.

I found you via Kathy's scavenger hunt, I loved your butterfly.
I really like how the £1 frames looked so good after you had given them a lick of paint, great idea.
I am into jumbles and charity shops too, plenty of bargains to be had in them.
Looks like our daughters share a love of the hula hoop!
