Summer Fete

Last weekend when the weather was perfect, Dunchurch had their annual fete.  The whole family went down to wait for the parade to come down the road....even the "famous hat" :o)



The banners were out glinting in the sun...



And the parade came down the road...



A couple of years ago we attended the fete and I took an almost identical picture of some Alpacas from this shop...guess my eye is drawn to the same things!



The band played and it was a lovely afternoon out.


Until next time...

That takes me back to the fetes we had back in Cheddleton. I wonder if it is a Midlands thing?!!
You need to come to Somerset and see their Carnivals at night. They have floats pulled by lorries and they are all lit up and are a sight to behold. Amazing spectacle. The girls would love it.
Aren't Alpaca's cute?

lovely pictures - it's our fete tomorrow. Known as the fete worse than death in our house but it's nothing of the sort!

I miss the fetes! How much fun....don't remember them having parades though - does that mean I missed something and need to go back?!
