Festival Time

Every year we go to the local festival but this year it was a little different, mainly because it’s not our local festival anymore because we moved house! It was lovely to go back though and we saw lots of old friends.
Last year the festival was a big washout, which was a big contrast to the year before which had been a lovely day.

This year we had nice weather which always helps, and there were loads of people there enjoying the day.

There are always the obligatory fair rides, I’m thinking it won’t be long before my three will grow out of these (and my purse won’t feel so empty)

 The kids loved these Jeeps, you can hire them for kids parties too which sounds fun!

 There is always a fire engine there and the kids love to take turns sitting in the driver seat

I love this photo of the Little Man through the fire engine window
A future career perhaps?

There is always a centre ring at the festival where they have all sorts of activities like a majorettes display, karate, zumba, belly dancing and singers. Here the kids are taking part in a dance routine with a rather cuddly looking Buzz Lightyear.

This year there was an animal tent where they let you hold all sorts of wonderful creatures like snakes and geckos. Star was particularly enamoured with this gecko and didn’t want to put him down. A future pet idea maybe?

There were also lots of the usual stalls and the kids had fun on the tombola and hook a duck. My final photo is of the Little Man playing with a water pistol that he won. Note the very serious face as he aimed at me.

We will be looking forward to next years festival, lets hope it’s sunny again.

    Looks fun! Also looks like you have a fireman in the making and a pet gecko on the horizon! x

      I've heard that Gecko's love eating spiders, so I'd welcome one as a pet, I'd let him run free around the house, he'd have a feast, lol

    This looks like a fab day out. I love the jeeps, they are so cool and definitely love the photo of the little man peeking out the fire engine :)x #countrykids

      Thanks, we all loved the jeeps, they were not popular though because at £5 a go they were a bit expensive, I did get two in one car though.

      I think I should change his blog name from little man to little fireman 🙂

    Not that looks like the best of festival fun with so much for the children to do. I love the animals tent, some real wow creatures in there! Thank you for sharing with me on Country Kids.

      The animal tent was a new addition, although they have had birds in the past. I couldn't get Star out of there.
