Big Weekend

This weekend marks an annual festival/carnival for the town with a market, side stalls, games and rides, and a parade scheduled through the High Street on Saturday afternoon and boat parade from the marina on Sunday.

Hubby and I walked down to the lock yesterday to see what was going on, and although it was not as much as we’ve seen in previous years, the atmosphere was still great.

No climbing tower this time, but the water spheres were there and the kids therein were having a wonderful time.

We walked up to the High Street for the parade, but there was nowhere Hubby could sit down apart from perching on a window frame. I went and got us a couple of coffees and when I came back, he had found a place on a bench. Maggie didn’t like the noise too much, but was able to get under the seat out of everyone’s way.

I love to see the kids all dressed up. I was told the theme this year was clowns, but I think it was more in the circus line judging from the costumes. It didn’t matter though, most were having fun, and I’ve edited the grizzlies out of my photos!
The parade walked down the High Street and then back up again in case you thought Id reversed the following images!

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

  1. Looks like the weather cooperated too.

    • It was a lovely afternoon, but boy did we have some heavy rain in the evening! It’s been lovely today for the boat parade and we heard a lot of horns going up river!

  2. I love a good parade – it looks like a great time!
